CHURCH BAY AND CEMAES BAY AREA FACILITIES
There is a paucity of petrol stations on the North West of Anglesey.
Apart from the ones mentioned below there is very little between Valley and Amlwch on the North East Coast. The garage in Llanfachraeth no longer sells petrol or diesel.
Head back from Church Bay for the coastal road and turn north towards Cemaes Bay (Or vice versa).
It's the first set of buildings on your left in the village.
Miss this one and take the next left and you can feed off Wylfa Nuclear Power Station.
"How many neutrons do you require, sir?"
Literally out in the wilds and a bit difficult to find, if for some reason the Tregele garage is closed during the day.
More or less opposite the garage in Tregele you will see a junction. Take this and follow the road through this small hamlet into the country.
After about a mile you'll see a side road to your right.
Take this and drive into the lovely little village of Llanfechell. Spot the white washed ancient church.
Straight through the square past the pub and it's there on your left.
It has one pump for diesel and petrol. It looks 'tired'; however, it has a little shop.
• Carry on eastward from Cemaes Bay past Bull Bay and into Amlwch.
Instead of turning left into the town carry on along the little by-pass to your right. You'll find the garage quite easily.
Interesting Fact - For those born more than fifty years ago, Tregele is also known as Tally Town.
Why? It's a corruption of the Welsh, 'Byw Talu', which means 'To live in Sin' - Outside of marriage.
You've got Gretna Green and we've got Tally Town.
A lovely large village to the north with plenty of pubs and the Harbour Hotel and a pretty good chip shop/caff.
• RS McColl mini-supermarket at the end of High Street. On your right as you face the Stag Inn at the very end of the street.
• Stag Inn at the end of the main street,
• The Harbour Hotel down by the beach car park;
• The Vigour Inn on the High Street;
• The Woburn Hill Hotel on the High Street.
• Wavecrest Café. Located immediately above the beach.
During the holiday period it is open between 10:00am and 5:00pm and closed all day on Tuesdays.
The Wavecrest Cafe is quite clearly an essential stop along the Anglesey Coastal Path.
A cup of tea and excellently cooked meal's the right thing to send you onwards.
• The Lobster Pot. This is a locally renowned restaurant.
Indeed it is renowned far and wide. Opposite the beach car park.
I am certain that people in far away Cheshire are planning their meals at Church Bay months ahead.
It is reassuringly expensive.
The lobsters are VERY FRESH.
In fact, I understand that prior to the evening’s cooking they are running on idle in a tank at the back.

• Cash Link in the McColl shop at the end of the High Street.
• There is also a free-standing HSBC cash machine.
The machine is located half way down the main street. Turn for the car park and it’s about 15 metres on your right.
Locals tell me that this cash machine is usually either not working or devoid of cash. Bon Chance.
• Post Office on the High Street.
You can usually draw money across the counter if your bank has an arrangement with Post Office Ltd.
These small post office exist on your custom, so why not buy something while you're there to make sure it's still there on your next visit.
• Rowlands Pharmacy, Medical Hall. At the end of the High Street on your right.
• Rowlands Pharmacy, 6 Queen Street. On the main street.
• A good well cared for toilet in the car park. Cared after by Anglesey County Council.
• In the beach car park.
• Just down the main street from the Cemaes Heritage Centre.
A good sized car park between the Lobster Pot and the Wavecrest cafe.
Pay and Display. I’ve noticed that they remove this at the end of the season - which is nice of them.
Be Warned! Anglesey County Council and the Police have employed a few Traffic Wardens as a Flying Squad in the last couple of years.
These individuals are not above arriving without warning and booking you if you haven’t paid and displayed.
• The village car park is half way down High Street on the left from the roundabout.
It's well sign-posted, just follow the road around the back of the buildings to a big car park.
• The beach car park is down on the beach – quite sensibly.
Follow the High Street down and round to the right in front of the Stag Inn. Down into the dip and you will find it just past the Harbour Hotel on the opposite side of the road.
PETS ON THE BEACH
• No major prohibition on dogs, but please keep them on a leash. Bring a poo-bag.
• Seasonal Prohibition on dogs. So if you happen to bring one - by accident - make sure you also bring a poo-bag.
Imagine specific matter oozing from between your tanning and sandy toes.
Imagine a worse scenario; it’s your child.
• Every beach carries the recommendation that you keep your dog on a leash.
• The main concern regarding doggies on Anglesey beaches is a health matter. Doggie poo can blind for life.
