Holidays in Anglesey, North Wales

Anglesey, North Wales is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax, enjoy the hospitality and lose yourself in the island's winding lanes or on its spectacular coast.

Anglesey boasts 27 award winning beaches, six of them attracting the coveted Blue Flag award. Everyone has his or her favourite beach. The sweeping bays of Newborough, Red Wharf, Cemaes and Lligwy are impressive. Along the west coast you will find small postcard inlets, Borthwen or Porth Trecastell for instance, as well as the world class surfing destination of Rhosneigr. Holidays in Anglesey, North Wales become extremely popular during the summer months, but such is the abundance of coves and sand, your only company might still be the seagulls, porpoises and a good book.

What is particularly appealing to families is that the beaches are clean. There are six Blue flag beaches, 13 Green Coast Award beaches, and seven Rural Seaside Award beaches. It means that in terms of cleanliness and the purity of water, these beaches far surpass the mandatory guidelines.

There's also plenty to do for all the family with events, attractions and outdoor activities all set in beautiful scenery. This includes Blue Flag beaches, Llanddwyn Island with its magical charm and legendary Welsh history, Beaumaris Castle, Anglesey Oyster Festival (every October) exploring the surreal lunar landscape of Copper Mountain and walking the 125 mile Anglesey Coastal Path. 

Other must do's include visiting Bryn Celli Ddu's stone-age burial chamber and the longest established Gallery in Wales at Oriel Tegfryn Art Gallery; taking a tour of Plas Newydd's elegant house and Llynnon Mill - the only working Wind Mill in Wales.
