Camping in Amlwch

Amlwch is the most northerly town in Wales. It is situated in the north east of the Isle of Anglesey, just off the North Wales coast and on the A5025.

The name Amlwch – a reference to the site of the town's harbour, Porth Amlwch – derives from Welsh am ("on, around") and llwch (an old word meaning "inlet, creek").

According to legend in the Middle Ages the town developed on a site that had a harbour but was not visible from the sea which helped to reduce the chance of Viking attacks.

It grew in the eighteenth century around what was then the world's biggest copper mine at the nearby Parys Mountain. By the late eighteenth century, Amlwch had a population of around 10,000 and was the second largest town in Wales after Merthyr Tydfil. It was at this time that its harbour was also extended to allow for the ships needed to transport the ore. It is currently the fourth largest settlement on the island with 3,438 inhabitants.
