Holyhead is the largest town on the island of Anglesey and a busy ferry port.  The harbour is protected from the Irish Sea by the historic breakwater, which is 1.5 miles long, and offers 24 hour access. 

Holyhead provides a gateway to cruising the North West and North Wales area and is a useful stopover on passage to or from Scotland or Ireland.  If weather keeps you in port for a while, you can find out about the 100 or so wrecks in the area and Holyhead's marine heritage at the Maritime Museum or walk out to South Stack for some bird watching.

The expanding marina has services for repairs, refuelling, chandlery and basic provisions and there are a couple of places to eat out nearby.
