Please be aware that in TREARDDUR BAY you'll find absolutely everything you need to enjoy a brilliant Anglesey holiday within a short mile or two.
Holyhead is a mile and a bit north with all the big shopping you'll need, with its supermarkets and the brilliant Co-op on the high Street.
See if you can make Beverley smile. It's well worth the endeavour.
Valley is a couple of miles the other way, with its lovely little arcade, family hotel, cafes and ethnic restaurant.
Rhoscolyn, where the food at The White Eagle is truly excellent.
As you will have noted on my TREARDDUR BAY Page there are a couple of great restaurants and pubs more or less right on the beach.
I am very happy to report that TREARDDUR BAY now finds itself with a cafe. The Bay Cafe opened this late Summer and offers snacks and sandwiches.
Some smart cookie has realised that people will be looking for a snack and somewhere to go on arainy day.
I wish them the very best of luck and advise them that simple and affordable is the way to success with families.

The Valley Hotel
REALLY IMPORTANT THIS
• You will usually find two ice-cream vans next to each other right on the beach near the lifeboat station (above).
You’ll also find them here on sunny winter weekends.
Both locals and visitors usually enjoy a glacial nibble in their cars while watching the sea break over the brave surfers who keep getting wiped out.
NONE IMMEDIATELY LOCAL. It burnt down a few years ago.
There are now two supermarket petrol stations in Holyhead: Morrisons and Tesco (supermarket is 24 Hours opening). Both very close to each other on the outskirts of town
Prices more or less the same for both and each has a little shop. The Tesco Supermarket is open 24 hours a day
There are two petrol stations in Valley. One at either end of the village.

Please be aware that Anglesey County Council is looking to sell-off or close all public toilets. Daft Buffers!
There is a scheme that nobody seems to know about where Anglesey County Council pay around £500 to pubs, cafes, hotels and public buildings in some towns to allow people to use their toilets without being obliged to buy anything.
A list exists! Check this link below for Anglesey County Council updates.
• In the main car park behind the beach.
• Overlooking the beach on the Trearddur Bay Hotel road just before the Lifeboat Station.
Just a few parking spaces(including disabled parking) but you get to stay next to the ice-cream vans. Heaven!
