One of the most romantic and magical days of the year is fast approaching – St. Valentine’s day is the perfect opportunity to propose to the one you love.
So why not do something extra special for the day of love this 2016, and make this the year you finally pop the big question to your loved one?
Proposing to your girlfriend, or boyfriend, is one of the biggest and most exciting journeys you’ll take on together and sets the pace for a life-long partnership. But before you do it, there are a few key things you need to consider.
One of the most important parts of any proposal is the location – and we’re yet to come across a place more strikingly beautiful than our very own shores of Anglesey, North Wales.
So if you want somewhere to create that picture-perfect moment, be sure to have a glance below and discover some of the most romantic and beautiful places our little island has to offer.

For a proposal location with magnificent views over the Irish Sea, the South Stack Cliffs are the ideal place to get down on one knee and make your partner happy!
The views of the ocean and the wonderful lighthouse will ensure this romantic moment will be set in your memories forever.
And it makes for the perfect place to get a picture-perfect proposal photo together, too!
The Harbourfront Bistro
If you’re looking for a more traditional place to propose, then a restaurant proposal could be the place for you. What we like about these proposals is that they offer the perfect place to relax, whilst also allowing you to make your loved one feel extra special for others to see.
There are a few amazing venues on Anglesey perfect for this, but one of the best is the Harbourfront Bistro. Outside they have an amazing decking area looking over the ocean that’s sure to take your partner’s breath away. Perfect to make them feel like they’re on top of the world on their engagement day!
Silver Bay Beach
We head back outdoors again for our next recommendation and straight to our very own Silver Bay Beach.
Our award-winning coastline is beautiful and brimming with atmosphere to set the scene for a nerve-tingling romantic moment. So whilst the stunning blue waters lap upon our award-winning soft and inviting shores, why not take advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings to provide the backdrop for one life’s most memorable moments.
After that, you can spend the afternoon on the beach planning the dreamy future that lies ahead for the two of you. Our recommendation, take a champagne picnic along for the moment too…
If you’d like to incorporate some history into your big moment, then a proposal at the iconic Beaumaris Castle could be the ideal place to pop the question.
Being surrounded by the beautiful, historic scenery is sure to make your proposal feel as grand as possible – and it’ll certainly make your partner feel like a king or queen – whatever takes their fancy!
You can then enjoy an afternoon out at the castle too, so everyone wins!
Anglesey Sea Zoo
For a proposal that’s a little different, the Anglesey Sea Zoo is an exciting alternative to traditional proposal spots.
If you’re the couple that’s a little unique, then why not take your loved one down to the sea zoo and propose surrounded by underwater friends?
It’s sure to be the last thing they expect at this attraction! But it’s also the perfect place to do something a little different with your proposal.
The Dingle Nature Reserve
If you’re the outdoorsy type, and have always dreamt of proposing amongst nature’s finest, then look no further than the majestic Dingle Nature Reserve.
This slice of natural paradise on Anglesey is a place where your love can flourish, and you’ll certainly get some privacy if you venture down here.
So if you’re a private couple that wants your proposal to be about you, and only you, then the Dingle Nature Reserve is the perfect place to get down on one knee.
Red Wharf Bay
You don’t need to go abroad to find a magnificent beach, and although we’ve already touched on Silver Bay Beach, Red Wharf Bay is another beautiful place to get down on one knee.
Why not take your loved one for a romantic beach stroll before getting your ring out and making their day?
If you get the weather right too, it could be a truly spectacular moment for the two of you!
Another local restaurant perfect for proposing is Dylan’s. Located near Menai Bridge and home to some inspiring views of the Menai Straits from their romantic balcony, Dylan’s makes for a very romantic place indeed.
Enjoy some tantalising food and celebrate with some bubbly with your new fiancé(e) at Dylan’s!
It’s sure to provide you both with a proposal to remember.
Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens
If you want to give your loved one a proposal surrounded by grandeur, then the Plas Newydd Country House is the ideal place to whisk them away on a romantic adventure.
Whether you want to propose in one of the beautiful, regal rooms, or perhaps would like to get lost together in the wonderful gardens, Plas Newydd offers a truely spectacular place where the two of you can experience something you’ll remember for the rest of your lives.
Don’t settle for less than your fiancé(e) deserves and begin your future together at Plas Newydd!
