Bull Bay, Anglesey

Bull Bay (Welsh: Porth Llechog) is a village and bay on the northern coast of Anglesey, Wales. Its Welsh name, Porth Llechog, means "sheltered bay". The English name is derived from Pwll y Tarw ("the bull's pool"), which is located near the shore close to the bay.

The village is located on the A5025. It is the most northerly village in Wales and also contains Wales' most northerly golf course which was opened and funded by a local aristocrat in 1913. The island of East Mouse lies within the bay, the coastline of which is rocky and contains many caves. Some of these rocks are over 570 million years old which make them amongst the oldest in Wales.

Bull bay is the home of Trireme Ynys Mon Rowing Club, a sea rowing club affiliated to the Welsh Sea Rowing Association. With regular training sessions taking place from the slipway in the village, and all ages and abilities are welcomed.
