Anglesey and Llyn Peninsula

Sea cliffs, dunes and beaches, clean golden sands

The Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn in Welsh) is situated off the north-west coast of Wales near the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range. It is separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait, which is spanned by two picturesque bridges, the Menai Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.

Anglesey abounds with areas where interesting birds, plants and other wildlife can be seen and enjoyed. Being an island it has over 100 miles of coastline with varied habitats, such as sea cliffs, dunes and beaches, salt marshes and mud flats. These provide homes for a wide variety of animals and also harbour a varied flora. Inland much of the island is low lying agricultural land. Numerous areas are flooded and marshy, providing a whole other set of plants and animals. Tourist will love the unspoilt beaches and extensive sands, and the popular seafront of Benllech offers miles of clean golden sands, safe bathing, boating, fishing and windsurfing activities.
