Nestling on the north west corner of Wales, with 125 miles of spectacular coastline all designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the backdrop of the mountains of Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey - Mother of Wales - is an exciting place at any time of year.
There are many historic and interesting places to visit on Anglesey. The island’s entire coastline has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are stunning sandy beaches, especially along the eastern coast from Beaumaris to Amlwch, and along the western coast from Ynys Llanddwyn to Rhosneigr. The northern coastline is characterised by dramatic cliffs and secluded bays. The Anglesey Coastal Path runs along nearly all the coastline, covering 124 miles of incredible scenery.
