Anglesey is a place where you can get away from it all. Relax, enjoy the hospitality and lose yourself in the island's winding lanes or on its spectacular coast. There's also plenty to do for all the family with events, attractions and outdoor activities all set in beautiful scenery.

Try the entire coastal path of 125 miles, which involves climbing 13,695 feet on an island claimed to be flat, or take fantastic day trips to Snowdonia and Ireland.
