Pentraeth, Anglesey
Picture of Pentraeth
Pentraeth means 'head of the beach', so naturally it is situated at the head of a beach in this case the beautiful Red Wharf Bay, on the east coast of Anglesey, north Wales. Although the sea may have receded slightly over time, Pentraeth has enough attractions to tempt visitors into the small village.
The 14th century church of Llanddyfnan stands 1.25 miles, 2km, from Pentraeth, an impressive building with a sculptured doorway and unusual west chamber. Interestingly, it widens division by division to the east, making it a fascinating historical building to visit in Anglesey. In the centre of the village itself the old church of St Mary's stands proudly at the crossroads. Pentraeth church is a small and simple church. Sadly St Mary's is one of the old churches that have been renovated during Victorian times and in so doing has lost much of it's character and charm. As with all of the island of Anglesey there are an abundance of prehistoric sites, standing stones, and neolithic burial chambers close to the village. If the history of Pentraeth and the area doesn't tempt you towards it, then surely the walks will. The Afon Nodwydd runs straight through Pentraeth, offering some beautiful walks along its banks, and towards Red Wharf Bay, you can stroll around whilst appreciating the magnificent views across the bay and towards the Isle of Man. Red Wharf Bay is also the place to go if you are a keen birdwatcher, as many sea birds flock here all times of year to make it their feeding ground.
With the city of Bangor just 19 minutes across the bridge on the mainland, and Holyhead 29 minutes to the west, there is plenty to do both in and around Pentraeth…
