Anglesey is an inspiring place to explore and we’re very proud to call this island our home. Along the coast, there are endless sandy beaches, curious rocky coves, dramatic cliff top footpaths, pine forests, rolling hills and wondrous sand dunes. Walkers and cyclists can go on an adventure along the famous Anglesey coast via the 125-mile Anglesey Coastal Path. Further inland you’ll find virtually car-free country lanes and quiet nature trails suitable for all the family.
However you like to travel, you’re sure to make frequent stops to admire the scenery – much of the island is classed as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Whether you’re looking out to the wild Irish Sea or back to the dramatic peaks of Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula, you can’t help but feel uplifted.
With a range of different environments, Anglesey is brimming with birds, plants and other wildlife. At the two RSPB reserves on the island, visitors can watch puffins at the South Stack Cliffs or goldeneyes at the Valley Wetlands. The Anglesey red squirrel population is now the largest in Wales, and the island is home to a variety of orchids, best seen in late spring on the dunes in Newborough Forest.
