About the Area
Beaches and Anglesey Coastal Path
- Lovely beaches abound along Anglesey's western coast. Nearest is Rhosneigr 3m - a great surfing destination and sandy beaches. Cable Bay (Porth Trecastell) is particularly good for surfing with massive southerly swells, especially in winter. There is also a long sandy beach at Treath Llydan (Wide Bay). Trearddur Bay a few miles northwards boasts a Blue Flag beach and close to the village another lovely beach, Porth Diana, offers boat and fishing trips along the rugged coastline.
- Join the Coastal Path towards Rhoscolyn and enjoy dramatic views of the stark vertical cliffs before dipping down to Rhoscolyn beach - a hidden gem, soft sand and an abundance of rock pools in which children will love to potter!
Malltraeth Cycle Path and Newborough Warren Nature Reserve
- Walk or cycle this well-signposted path across Malltraeth Estuary to Newborough Warren Nature Reserve. This forest is a bird watchers' paradise with 'hides' in the woods often by small lakes - ideal for quiet observation. Look out for the red squirrels! Anglesey has almost completely eradicated the greys so that the reds thrive. Newborough Beach and Llanddwyn Island
- The miles of pristine sands from Llanddwyn Island to the southern tip of Anglesey forms one of the finest beaches in Britain - dramatic mountain views, clean clear water, woods and mythology. Enjoy the little lighthouse on the Island and admire the beautifully carved gate at the entrance. Note the Island is only accessible at low tide.
Culture and culinary delights by the sea.
- There has been a sudden blossoming of excellent eateries throughout the Island, the best of which are nearby. The Sea Shanty, a New England style clapboard Cafe on the beach in Treaddur Bay or the Black Seal restaurant and Gin Bar, both right on the beach front. For Sunday lunch try the Marram Grass at Newborough or for a really special night out dining at the Freckled Angel in Menai Bridge, a new restaurant, serving excellent British tapas with extraordinary flair.
- In Rhosneigr there are plenty of good places to eat, Sandy's Bistro and Mojo's Creperie and above Rhoscolyn, The White Eagle - eat out on the wide balcony overlooking the sea in the summer or by the huge fire during in winter months.
- Oriel Ynys Mon Gallery in Llangefni has exhibitions all year round, it also has a superb cafe.
- Possibly the most beautiful town in North Wales. With its romantic castle surrounded by a moat. Full of lovely independent shops and stylish restaurants including The Olde Bulle's Head with its excellent brasserie and loft restaurant. Do visit the Janet Bell Gallery, owned by a renowned local artist, full of lovely bric a brac and jewellery. Walk along the Victorian Pier to really enjoy the stunning views of the Menai Strait.
South Stack and Holy Island RSPB's Ellin's Tower
- Observatory to view the large colonies of seabirds that the cliffs support. Spectacular views can be enjoyed of the Lleyn Peninsula and Bardsey Island. The Wicklow Mountains of Ireland can also be seen on a clear day. Visit South Stack lighthouse built in 1809 - not for the faint-hearted as there are 400 stone steps and a metal bridge to be negotiated.
