The Isle of Anglesey is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.
Anglesey offers 125 miles of coastline with a variety of sandy beaches, cliff paths and rock pools. Head for Red Wharf Bay, Porth Dafarch, Church Bay, Trearddur Bay and Llandddwyn Island. Benllech Beach is perhaps the most popular with its wide sands and safe paddling.
Beamaris is certainly worth a visit, with a seafront, a mix of Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian architecture, and the 14th century castle, which is a United Nations World heritage site.
Anglesey is great for walking. The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path follows much of the islands coastline and is 130 miles long, passing through 20 towns and villages.
For cyclists, Anglesey boasts 2 of the UK’s 9 cycle routes. The Lon Las Copr (NCN566) is a 36-mile route through the north-east of the island. The Lon Las Cefni is a 13-mile, traffic free cycle path taking in Parys Mountain. Download the Anglesey By Bike Leaflet for more information.
