Isle of Anglesey, Visitor & Tourism Guide

World Heritage and healing wells, beaches and copper
In North Wales. An island off the coast of Gwynedd and north west of Snowdonia National Park. The Lleyn AONB is to the south. Two bridges span the Menai Strait. The Menai Suspension Bridge, considered to be the first modern suspension bridge in the world, is wonderful when lit up at night.

Pretty much all of the coast here falls within the Anglesey AONB.

Beaumaris Castle and Penmon Priory
Beaumaris Castle World Heritage Site (part of the 'Castles and Town Walls of King Edward in Harlech, Beaumaris, Caernarfon and Conwy (Gwynedd)' UNESCO World Heritage Site), is a short drive to the north east of Menai Bridge. Beyond the castle, on the coast, is Penmon Priory with its ancient healing well and a short walk away by a beach is . The views back to Snowdonia National Park from here are exceptional. In Beaumaris, also visit its pier and Gaol & Courthouse Museum.

Beaches and coast
Unsurprisingly, the island is home to dozens of beaches, a handful of which have Blue Flag status. Try Cemaes Bay (north), Red Wharf Bay (east), Trearddur Bay (west) and Llanddwyn Bay/Island (south). Up by Holyhead is the popular South Stack Lighthouse. On the coast, too, is Llangwyfan, 'The Church in the Sea'.

Horse Riding
By Llanddwyn Bay/Island and Newborough Forest, you'll find Tal y Foel Riding (link provided).

In addition to its castle and religious buildings, there are many top prehistoric sites to experience (for example, the stunning Barclodiad y Gawres close to Llangwyfan) as well as a fne National Trust property south of Menai Brodge called Plas Newydd.

Parys Mountain
Just south of Amlwch is Parys Mountain, a copper mine with a lunar landscape. Excavations reveal that metal has been mined here for thousands of years. It's an extraordinary site. To learn more about the history of the island and its people, visit Oriel Ynys Mon just off the A55.
