Cemaes is the most northerly village in Wales.

It has been shaped by the natural resources available to it and lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) some of which is owned by the National Trust.

The village includes a sheltered natural harbour that looks north to the Irish Sea and two beaches, Big Beach (Traeth Mawr) and Little Beach (Traeth Bach).

Discover our spectacular, unspoilt coastline and rich heritage, 860 million year old geology, take a boat trip, have a beach day, visit one of the oldest churches in Wales, shop in the picturesque high street, go crabbing off the ancient harbour, watch wonderful wildlife, walk the coastal path or simply relax and breathe it all in.

There’s plenty to see and do whatever the weather, accommodation to suit every budget from camping to boutique luxury, pubs with live music, traditional cafes, a maritime museum. Why not explore some of the local history by visiting Cemaes Heritage Centre, or walking up the Wygyr Valley to the old brickworks.

Cemaes is the site of an ancient settlement that in more recent centuries became a centre of maritime and industrial activities. Today it is home to around 1,000 people residing in the parish of Llanbadrig.

The picturesque character of Cemaes, with its brightly coloured houses on the High Street, has attracted many holidaymakers, tourists and artists since the Victorian times, responding to the sea & sky as it changes with the weather, awe-inspiring sunsets, the multicolored rocks and sands exposed on the cliffs and beaches as well as the charm of Cemaes village.
