If you fancy doing something a little different on your next break to our stunning island, explore below. You’ll find a rundown of perfect May half-term activities.
Pili Palas Nature World
If you love wildlife, and want to introduce your little ones to an attraction that’s both educational and entertaining, then Pili Palas is the perfect spot.
Home to Anglesey’s most famous butterfly centre, the whole family can get up close and personal with the beautiful, winged creatures – as well as many more creatures such as birds, snakes, and other exotic species.
If the weather is good, May half-term can also be the ideal time to head out on their nature trail where you’ll also come across their friendly alpacas! There’s also a cafe on site to fill your boots, alongside a conservatory where you can eat your sandwiches and watch the meerkats frolic.
Prices start from £7.25 for children up to the age of 16, and under threes go free!
Woodland Adventures at Silver Bay
If your little ones adore foraging and spending time exploring and discovering new things in the beautiful outdoors, then why not book them onto our Woodland Adventures activity?
Taking place on Thursday the 1st of June and Saturday the 3rd of June, it’s a great opportunity to train them up on outdoor survival, and they’ll make lots of Silver Bay friends along the way.
All you need to do to enrol your children is to call Silver Bay on 01407 862 049 and then put together a packed lunch to keep their energy levels up! This is a child-only event, so it will also give you some time to relax with your partner whilst the little ones are entertained and taken care of.
