The North Wales region
North Wales is extraordinarily beautiful with both sea and mountains. Anglesey is less than half an hour away from two historic towns castle towns of Conwy and Caernarfon both have Marinas and sailing facilities are available all along the coast of North Wales.
Just beyond Conwy is the beautiful Victorian town of Llandudno which has one of the most beautiful promenades and traditional pier. Llandudno nestles at the bottom of the Orme and copper mine, and houses a Ski Slope, Tobbogan Run and Cable Car.
Within half an hour of Anglesey, Snowdonia National Park provides a wealth of activities including walking, climbing, mountaineering, cycling, canoeing, white water rafting, and Skiing.
The Isle of Anglesey provides an unspoilt paradise accessed from the mainland via two historic bridges. The Menai Suspension Bridge is a fine example of Telfords engineering. The Britannia Bridge built by Stevenson is another example of fine engineering, burnt and rebuilt it is now both a road and railway bridge.
Underneath the bridge you'll find the original stone Lions. Both Bridges cross the Menai Straits which is an exciting stretch of water for water sports and has the treacherous Swillies. With only two access routes Anglesey is managing to re-collanise the Red Squirrel.
Anglesey is best loved for it's stunning and varied coastal scenery from it's wonderful sandy beaches to it's isolated coves and tiny seaside villages. A well marked but unspoilt coastal path takes you around the island in approximately 10 days of walking. The dramatic weather and rugged countryside make it an ever changing landscape.
The island is steeped in history with historical towns such as Amlwch, Llangefni and Holyhead, and the beautiful castle town of Beaumaris with it's own Marina. The lighthouses of Penmon, South Stack and the old lighthouse at Ynys Llanddwyn are popular tourist attractions. It is said that two monks crossed eachother walking from the furthermost lighthouses Penmon to South Stack one with a red face and one with a white face.
The pretty historic fishing village of Moelfre is located on the popular East coast of Anglesey. It is steeped in maritime history as it was the location for the wreck of the `Royal Charter' in 1859. The `state of the art' working Life Boat Station and Crew are seen daily practicing to save lives and there's a wealth of local history found at the Seawatch Centre which is within easy walking distance of the cottage.
The furthermost points on the island are no more than 40 minutes drive away making it an ideal holiday destination.
Moelfre houses the Kimnel Arms Pub and award winning Ann's Pantry Cafe and Restaurant, with a stream running between them, and both overlooking the pretty fishing bay. There are some interesting shops including Tym Pen Stryd Craft and Tea Shop selling unusual gifts, arts and crafts.
The Anglesey Coastal Path begins and ends at the bottom of Charter Cottage, winding around the whole of the Anglesey Coastal Path. If you walk it in stages you can either use and plant a second car, or use the local bus service to take you to each stage, taking approximately 10 stages to complete.
The beaches at Traeth Bychan, Lligwy, Abberfraw, Rhosneigr and Red Wharf Bay are second to none, making Moelfre an ideal location for water sports including windsurfing, kite surfing, sailing and water skiing. Traeth Bychan also has a lovely Cafe and Water Sport Shop. There are five premier Golf Courses on the island plus 4 nine hole courses (one of which is 10 minutes drive from Moelfe).
Anglesey hosts a Walking Festival in the month of May with daily activities including the famous Monk Lighthouse to Lighthouse Walk, guided nature rambles, copper mine tour, and bat watching. The person who walks the highest official mileage wins a meal for two in the beautiful stately Tresgawen Hall.
Anglesey also has a wealth of historic venues including burial sites, viking traces, and castles. You can visit Anglesey Sea Zoo, Pili Butterfly Palas, and Foel Farm.
Moelfre hosts an annual Lifeboat Day which is a fun filled day and night.
Anglesey has a number of well signposted Cycle Routes all over the island. If you cycle over the Bridge you then have a choice of cycling the North Wales Coastal Cycle Path (or you can walk any of the Cycle Routes) heading either beyond Caernarfon or the other direction towards Rhyl.
If you fancy leaving Moelfre for an evening out, Anglesey hosts some fabulous eateries including the Ship Inn, Boathouse Cafe and Restaurant and St Davids Restaurant in the beautiful Red Wharf Bay, The Bridge in Menai Bridge overlooking the Menai Suspension Bridge, and the Pilot Boat as you head of of Moelfre are all worth visiting.
