Anglesey is one of the most perfect places in the entire UK to staycation. But don’t just take our word for it. The Times has recently released their list of the Best British Island Escapes, with incredible destinations from Cornwall to the Shetlands. We’re pleased to see our very own Anglesey has topped the list. Let’s explore what makes Anglesey an incredible destination for your next adventure. 

Visit Snowdonia National Park 

When you visit Anglesey you’re just a stone’s throw away from Snowdonia National Park and it’s easy to make a day trip out there. This national park is home to Snowdon, the highest mountain in Wales as well as shimmering lakes offering a vast range of opportunities for outdoor activities. Snowdonia is a favourite amongst trekking enthusiasts and climbers alike, however, there is an opportunity for casual walkers to enjoy the mountains at a leisurely pace. We’d recommend getting there early to experience the stunning sunrise at the top of the mountain, don’t forget to bring your camera to take plenty of photos. 

Water sports

Anglesey is the largest island in North Wales, with 123 miles of stunning coastline it offers a playground for those seeking water-based adventures in the great outdoors. The coastline is full of blue flag beaches, rolling dunes, hidden coves and cliffs that tower overhead. But it’s the incredible waters that bring adrenaline junkies back repeatedly, with activities including water sailing, kayaking, surfing and sea paddling available. Did you know that you can go diving in Anglesey to discover the hidden underwater world full of reefs and shipwrecks? There is never a shortage of activities for those wanting to dive into the adventure!

Explore the smaller islands

There are a number of beautiful smaller islands off the coast of Anglesey that are great to explore on foot when the tide allows it or catch a boat to visit. One of the most popular is Puffin Island, which as the name suggests is home to a large group of puffins in the spring and early summer. This is an incredible chance to get close to these magnificent birds and makes for a great activity for the entire family. 

Experience South Stack 

South Stack is undoubtedly one of the most jaw-dropping parts of Anglesey, this viewpoint and RSPB reserve at Holy Island offers breathtaking views and is the perfect backdrop for your holiday snaps! Take a stroll along the cliffs to explore the South Stack lighthouse which is perfected on the top of a giant mound of rocks. Here you can experience breathtaking uninterrupted views of the zig-zagging coastline heading south of Holy Island. 

Ultimate relaxation 

Everyday life can be very busy, with people constantly switched on and staring at their smartphone phones and laptops it can be very hard to switch off. Anglesey makes that a little easier. As soon as you drive over that Menai Bridge, you will notice it gets a little quieter. In fact, Anglesey is one of the least crowded holiday destinations in Britain according to the Island Cottage Research. There’s plenty of relaxation opportunities from connecting with nature on a technology-free hike, to relaxing on the beach or visiting a spa to melt away your worries. So place your phone down, disconnect from the outside world and take the time to appreciate the soothing Anglesey air!

This new holiday park is set in the woodlands overlooking the Lligwy Brook offering guests a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere. Here you can feel at one with nature, you’ll feel a world away from civilisation whilst being very close to all that the park and Anglesey has to offer.

Our new development is situated at a caravan park formerly known as Rynys. Silver Bay Lligwy is home to a variety of luxury lodges and caravans, all the properties on the site are move-in ready and will be available by the summer of 2021.

With Halloween just around the corner, it’s time to get creative with your celebrations. Take a look at our list of innovative activities for the entire family to enjoy at home this spooky season.

Pumpkin Carving

Is it even Halloween if you’ve not carved a pumpkin? Pumpkin carving is the perfect October competition for your entire household to get involved in. There’s still plenty of socially distanced pumpkin picking opportunities around Anglesey, with farms including Bellis Brothers Farm, Chirk Castle and Manorafon Farm still offering the pumpkin picking experience. 

Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt 

With the traditional way of trick-or-treating not being possible this year, it doesn’t mean that Halloween is cancelled. It’s time to put a little twist with a trick or treat scavenger hunt, like an Easter Egg hunt but spookier!  You can hide chocolates, sweets or whatever you fancy around the house/garden. Just make sure you don’t forget about the chocolate hidden behind the radiator! Get the kids all dressed up as normal and send them off on their hunt!

Host a Virtual Halloween Party

Despite not being able to socialise indoors with anyone outside of your household, it doesn’t mean you can still enjoy Halloween with them. Thanks to technology there are still ways for you to connect with your friends/family during this spooky season. Decorate your house, throw on a fang-tastic outfit and let the party begin! You can have a virtual costume contest, tell spooky stories, or even host a classic Zoom quiz (Halloween edition of course). 

Halloween movie marathon

There’s nothing better than getting cosy on the sofa with the family on a cold autumn day. In this era of movie subscription services, there are thousands of movies available to watch with a few clicks of a button. There’s plenty of spooktastic Halloween films for the entire family to enjoy with kids classics like Corpse Bride, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Casper! For those feeling extra brave horror classics including IT and The Shining are perfect for this season, even if you’re watching through your fingers!

Anglesey is the perfect place for a bike ride and travelling the island on two wheels offers a different perspective compared to walking or driving. The list of cycle routes on Anglesey is a long one and everyone will have their preferred route, but we’ve put together some of our favourite Anglesey cycle routes in case you need some inspiration.

Lôn Lâs Cefni cycle

Lôn Lâs Cefni – 13 miles

Most of this route is traffic-free so perfect for a family ride out and the trail runs both north and south from the town of Llangefni. To the north is a two mile traffic-free trail that starts at the local nature reserve known as The Dingle (Pant y Pandy) and heads through woodland past Cefni Reservoir to a picnic spot. The southern section of the trail is much longer and follows the Afon Cefni across Malltraeth Marsh to Pont Marquis, joining a quiet lane that takes you to the village of Malltraeth. From Maltraeth you then turn south to head towards Newborough Forest, Anglesey’s largest woodland with plenty of tracks for exploring.

You can find the Lôn Lâs Cefni route here on the Visit Anglesey website.

Telor Tour cycle route

Telor Tour – 17 miles

The Telor Tour is a circular route, starting and finishing at Beaumaris with some amazing views of the sea on the way. Take a hilly ride up to Llanddona village then down to the coast for Penmon Priory and out to Black Point, which is the easternmost point of Anglesey. This is a great spot to stop off for some lunch plus you can catch some amazing views of Puffin Island and Trwyn Du Lighthouse. Penmon Priory is usually open and well worth a visit. The 400 year old Dovecote is also worth seeing plus there’s an ancient wishing well in a walled garden.

Take a look at the full Telor Tour route here.

Hebog Tour cycle route

Hebog Tour – 22 miles

The Hebog Tour is a circular route starting and finishing at Benllech. Make your way up to Moelfre, stopping at Din Lligwy on the way. Din Lligwy is an ancient village site near the coast and makes for a striking sight. Past Din Lligwy you will come to Lligwy beach, a lovely wide and sandy beach backed by low sand dunes. After Lligwy beach it’s a steady climb to Mynydd Bodafon, a small collection of peaks including the Arwydd, which is the highest point on the island of Anglesey. The remainder of the route is relatively easy; you can take a shorter route back round to Benllech or take a longer detour down to Llyn Cefni, the second largest manmade lake on Anglesey.

You can find a map of the Hebog Tour route here.

The Copper Trail

The Copper Trail – 33 miles

This route is perfect for those interested in geology as you have the option to take a detour up Parys Mountain and walk around the old copper mines. Starting at Llynnon Mill, near Llanddeusant, head towards Llanerchymedd. Continue to Penysarn; this is where you will pass the disused copper mines of Parys Mountain. Continue to Llaneilian and then on to the town of Amlwch Port, before heading to Llanfechell. The route then takes you to the coast and the Cemlyn Bay Nature Reserve, ideal if you’re a keen birdwatcher. Continue around Mynydd Y Garn, offering great views of Holyhead Bay, then through Llanrhyddlad to the finishing point at Llanddeusant.
