The origin of the name Aberffraw comes from Aber meaning at the mouth of the estuary or river. The mouth of the river now is quite narrow and also quite shallow, but in medieval times when the Prince of Wales lived here, the estuary would have been much wider and the river much deeper to allow large ships to dock. Christian worship can be traced back to 1254 and the old church of Llangwyfan that stands on a rocky islet in a bay just outside Aberffraw and was dedicated to St. Cwyfan.
Now a great holiday or short break destination, Aberffraw makes a superb base from which to explore the rest of the Islands towns and villages. The island is full of history and activities to keep the most active entertained.
