Things to See and Do

Anglesey is an excellent adventure activities destination. An island with 125 miles of stunning unspoilt coastline with long sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs and isolated coves, much of it is in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and all linked by the Anglesey Coastal Path.

Also a haven for wildlife and home to some of Britain’s rarest mammals, including the red squirrel, water vole and otter. On the coast you can see seals, porpoise, puffins, peregrine falcons and chough. From fun rock pooling to serious bird watching Anglesey has many natural wonders waiting to be explored.

Travelling around the island you travel through time. Haunting neolithic burial mounds and standing stones, celtic hut circles, a Roman fort at Holyhead and the Edwardian castle at Beaumaris all provide evidence of  Anglesey’s rich heritage. Anglesey has been home to druids and saints, the Princes of Gwynedd, the witches of Llanddona and ship-wreckers of Rhosneigr, and is steeped in folklore.

For the more active there are bike trails at Newborough, some of Britain’s best sea kayaking on the North and West coasts, Kite Surfing in Rhosneigr, and scuba diving in Trearddur Bay. Anglesey is also becoming known for it’s adventure events including the Sandman Triathlon, Tour de Mon cycling sportif, Sea Kayak Storm Gatherings and Endurancelife Coastal Trail Race.
