Mae Bodorgan yn Hamlet ac ardal gymunedol gyfagos ar ochr orllewinol Ynys Môn. Yn ôl Cyfrifiad 2001, mae 1,503 o drigolion yn y ward etholiadol, 72.7% ohonynt yn gallu siarad Cymraeg. Cynyddodd hyn i 1,704 yng Nghyfrifiad 2011 ond dim ond 67.72% o’r boblogaeth gynyddol oedd bellach yn siaradwyr Cymraeg.
Mae’r pentref yn cael ei wasanaethu gan Orsaf Reilffordd Bodorgan, sydd wedi’i lleoli ger pentrefi Bethel a Llangadwaladr i’r gogledd-orllewin, sydd yn rhan o’r gymuned, fel y mae Malltraeth. Mae’n gorwedd ar ffordd ddi-ddosbarth i’r de-orllewin o bentref Hermon, lle mae’r ffordd A4080 yn mynd heibio. I’r dwyrain ac i’r de o Bodorgan mae aber Afon Cefni a tywod helaeth Malltraeth. Hefyd wedi’i leoli ar gyrion y pentref yw Stad Bodorgan, yr ystad wledig fwyaf ar Ynys Môn. Mae’r tŷ, y Dovecote ac ysgubor yn adeiladau rhestredig Gradd II. Y rhesymau a roddwyd dros restru’r tŷ yw ei fod mewn “safle sefyllfa arfordirol godidog”, sy’n cadw llawer o’i nodweddion gwreiddiol, ar ôl cadw terasau ffurfiol yn dda; parc ceirw yn dal i gael ei ddefnyddio; olion sylweddol o gegin furiog helaeth ac unwaith yn adnabyddus Gerddi; Ardaloedd gardd eraill, llai ffurfiol, wedi’u cynllunio sydd wedi goroesi yn rhannol, gan gynnwys rhai plannu; coverts coetir a saethu; colofnau brics crwn mawr ac adeiladau eraill o ddiddordeb. ” Tan 2013, roedd Dug a Duges Caergrawnt yn byw mewn ffermdy ar Ystâd Bodorgan yn ystod yr amser pan oedd y Tywysog William yn gwasanaethu fel peilot hofrennydd chwilio ac-achub yn RAF Valley gerllaw.
Llywodraethu.
Mae ward llywodraeth leol Bodorgan, yn cynnwys pentrefi Malltraeth, Bethel a Llangadwaladr ac mae ganddo gyfanswm o tua 900 o drigolion yn unol â Chyfrifiad 2011. Fodd bynnag, yn dilyn 2012, daeth Bodorgan yn Newidiadau Ffin Etholiadol Ynys Môn yn rhan o ward mwy Bro Aberffraw gyda chymunedau cyfagos Aberffraw a Rhosyr.

BODORGAN is a hamlet and a surrounding community area on the western side of the Isle of Anglesey, Wales. According to the UK Census 2001, there are 1,503 residents in the electoral ward, 72.7% of them being able to speak Welsh. This increased to 1,704 at the 2011 Census but only 67.72% of this increased population were Welsh speakers.
The village is served by Bodorgan railway station, which is located near the hamlets of Bethel and Llangadwaladr to the north-west, which are in the community, as is Malltraeth. It lies on an unclassified road to the southwest of the village of Hermon, through which the A4080 road passes. To the east and south of Bodorgan lies the estuary of the Afon Cefni and the extensive Malltraeth Sands. Also situated in the hamlet is Bodorgan Hall, the largest country estate on Anglesey. The house, dovecote and a barn are Grade II listed buildings. The reasons given for listing the house are that it is a “site in a magnificent coastal position, which retains many of its original characteristics, having well preserved formal terraces; deer park still in use; substantial remains of extensive and once well known walled kitchen gardens; other, less formal, designed garden areas which have partially survived, including some planting; woodland and shooting coverts; large circular brick dovecote and other buildings of interest.” Until 2013, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge lived in a farmhouse on the Bodorgan Estate during the time when Prince William was serving as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot based at RAF Valley nearby.

Governance.
The local government ward of Bodorgan, includes the villages of Malltraeth, Bethel and Llangadwaladr and has a total of around 900 inhabitants as at 2011 Census. However, following the 2012 Isle of Anglesey electoral boundary changes Bodorgan became part of a larger Bro Aberffraw ward with the neighbouring communities of Aberffraw and Rhosyr.
In November 2012, 101-year old Bodorgan community councillor, Mary Edwards MBE, was the UK’s oldest community councillor. She had represented Bodorgan on Aethwy District Council between 1948 and 1974, subsequently serving on Anglesey County Council until 1996.
