Isle of Anglesey A royal welcome

Direct flights from Cardiff to Anglesey

Isle of Anglesey is a treasure trove of historical delights, beautiful beaches and epic activities. Located off the north-west coast of Wales and 24 miles from Snowdonia, Anglesey is the largest island in Wales and is perfect for a romantic getaway or a family holiday.

There is always a warm welcome from the locals, as they happily share the delights of this destination. From long walks along the coastline to surfing the waves, Anglesey offers more than a breath of fresh air to blow away the cobwebs! After embracing the great outdoors, visitors can then enjoy a relaxed stroll through the towns to see the many boutique shops and restaurants.

Anglesey even has the royal seal of approval, as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge has had a home on the island for many years.

  1. Try something new. Anglesey offers a range of watersports, that doesn’t just include surfing, so take the plunge and try paddle boarding, kayaking or even windsurfing. You might discover a skill you never knew you had!
  2. Go underwater. No, this doesn’t mean going for a quick swim in the sea, instead take the family to Anglesey Sea Zoo, where you can keep warm and learn about marine life.
  3. Discover the festivals. There is always a lively buzz in Anglesey due to its range of festivals throughout the year, including Menai Seafood Festival and Wakestock.
  4. Get tongue tied. Anglesey is home to Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the village with the longest name in Britain. Marvel at the sign and grab a delicious lunch in a nearby pub.
  5. Go back in time. Beaumaris Castle is a must-see attraction in Anglesey as it is from the 13th century and is classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although the castle is unfinished, visitors can still explore its passageways and staircases.

 

Menai Bridge is massively up and coming. There are 7 pubs in this village, a historical bridge, two restaurants and loads of takeaways and small boutiques

Cemmaes Bay is very nice to visit, that's in the north of the island where Wales' most northerly pub is. There really is too much do here to list!
