Anglesey is many things. It is a place that inspires, a place that appeals to all the senses – a place to see, hear, taste, smell and feel. It is a place to get away from it all. Most of all, Anglesey is a place to get out and do!
From the minute you cross one of the bridges you’ll see stunning landscapes, unspoiled coastlines and picturesque towns and villages that are just waiting to be explored. Miles of scenic walks on the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path and cycle paths await you, as do a huge variety of water based activities.
There is so much to be discovered, from the island’s rich culture and heritage to wonderful scenery including unusual ‘moonscape’ landscapes that are home to an extraordinary amount of plants and wildlife.
Much of our coastline has been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and come rain or shine our fabulous beaches offer something for everyone – vast stretches of sand, swimming for the children and windswept bays where a bracing dog walk and rock pooling are the order of the day.
The island boasts 125 miles of coastal paths which traverse areas of outstanding national beauty including six blue flag beaches. We are situated on one of the dedicated cycle routes for those keen to explore the island on or off road.
Anglesey is conveniently located for access to the Snowdonia National Park, Caernarvon and Conway castles and should you wish to venture further afield you can easily take a ferry to Dublin from Holyhead.
Anglesey has numerous beautiful beaches, this guide provides an excellent summary of all the locations across the island.
