Llangoed is a small village, former parish, community and electoral ward just north of Beaumaris, on the Isle of Anglesey or Ynys Môn. Llangoed ward had a population of 1,275 at the UK census of 2001, falling at the 2011 census to 1,229.

The village's placename means the 'religious enclosure in the wood' in the Welsh language.

Llangoed is on the banks of a brook called the Afon Lleiniog, which flows from the hamlet of Glanrafon to the sea, beneath the ruins of an 11th-century motte-and-bailey castle, Castell Aberlleiniog.

Off the northeastern shore is the uninhabited Puffin Island (Welsh: Ynys Seiriol), or Priestholm, which was an extra parochial area and chapelry.
