Moelfre is a picturesque former fishing village with a long maritime history on the east coast of the Isle of Anglesey. The meaning of Moelfre translated in English is 'bald or barren hill', which describes the land behind the village, as seen from the sea.

This area is popular as it is right by the large sandy beach Traeth Lligwy, which is an excellent spot for water and beach sports, and the ancient stone homestead of Din Lligwy. Nearby Ynys Moelfre is also a haven for birds and seals and porpoises may be seen.

Moelfre RNLI Lifeboat Station is open to the public and has a famous history, including the Hindlea rescue in 1959, when all the crew were rescued.
