Attractions on Anglesey

Are you looking for exciting island attractions during your stay on Anglesey?

So many people visiting the island tell me how much they love our beautiful coastline and magnificent sea views.

We have some of the best beaches in Great Britain and Europe, some amazing rocky headlands, sand dunes and lovely green countryside.

And if you are looking for historic monuments or wildlife, you can find them all here.

It is not surprising that this island is one of only four areas in Wales to be given the official title "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" (or AONB for short).

So please forgive us if we find it difficult to say which is our favourite place or view. With such a rich and varied choice, that's a real challenge.

Don't worry, we will take you on a virtual tour of these great places. Of course, as there are so many to look at, you will need to pop back here from time to time as we update.

So here we go with our first review!
