Y Felinheli

Travel Guide
Y Felinheli showing a pebble beach and a small town or village

Visit this pretty coastal village where the houses rise up the hillside, overlooking dozens of boats in the harbor.

Find Y Felinheli nestled on a stretch of water between the Isle of Anglesey and the Welsh mainland. Enjoy walks through the rugged Welsh countryside and along the coastline. Relax in the marina or head out into the waves for a range of marine activities.

Set out from the village on one of the many walks in the area. Stroll along the shores of the Menai Strait or head across the fields towards Bethel. Follow the public footpath around the village or walk the narrow streets to the center of the village. This still feels rural, with sweeping views across the surrounding countryside.

Go down to the beautiful Y Felinheli Harbour and gaze out across the ocean. Pull on a wetsuit and try kayaking, windsurfing or paddleboarding. Book a course and learn how to handle a range of boats, from dinghies to sail and powerboats. Stay on land to enjoy the marina itself and get some food and drink in one of the local cafés or pubs.

Bring your children to GreenWood Forest Park for a fun family day out. Ride the world’s only people-powered roller coaster and try the longest sled run in North Wales. Paddle your way through the Jungle Boat Adventure, climb through the Treetop Towers and play on the giant bouncy pillow. Watch children’s entertainment at the Forest Theatre. Visit the aviary and the petting zoo to spot the resident peacocks.

Y Felinheli is a 15-minute drive from Bangor, which has good train and bus links. You’ll have options to stay in a hotel or inn. The area has a large number of vacation rentals. The village is a 10-minute drive from Caernarfon, which also has a range of accommodations available.

"On arrival was put in a room out of the hotel. There was no option of drinks at the bar. The hotel inside needs a clean and smells. There was only an hand full of people staying there. The pool was covered over. The hotel needs a total refurb."
