Things to 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.

What People Say About OA…
15 Years and many more to come
“We have been frequenting Outdoor Alternative for more than 15 years as a group of neighbours and family from Bury. We love the place and it’s beautiful position and accommodation with easy access to the Rhoscolyn beach.
Each year the owners invest that little bit more in the place just to add to the comfort and keep the place up to date. Superb for big family occasions but also has facilities for smaller group and families. Thanks again for the past 15 years and many more to come.”.
Perfect for schools or youth groups
“I’ve just taken a group of 11 and 12 year olds to Outdoor Alternative, with activities provided by b-active. What a fantastic trip! The accommodation is lovely: clean and comfortable inside and out, in a beautiful setting, and we were made to feel very welcome and looked after by Jacqui and Mark, who catered for us with a range of hearty meals, taking various dietary requirements in their stride. The activities with Andy and Steve were perfectly pitched for the group, and it was particularly great that they were provided from the site, with no need to travel except a nice walk down to the beach! This is certainly on my go-again list.”
“Just back after a two night stay. Fantastic location a few minutes walk from the beach and 10 minutes from a fabulous pub. Facilities are clean and well kept. Lovely hot showers. Camping field is well kept. Really reasonable too – will definitely be back”.
