Brimming with rich Welsh history and photo-worthy landscapes, the island of Anglesey is a jewel in North Wales' crown
Stretching some 276 square miles, it is the largest island in Wales and is bigger than any of its English counterparts. Tourists are drawn to this ancient corner of the United Kingdom to bask in its vast areas of unspoilt nature - more than 85 square miles of the island have been titled an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - as well as its ample historic sights. After crossing the imposing Menai Suspension Bridge visitors setting off on Anglesey short breaks are welcomed with secluded sandy beaches, stunning sea views and castles and stately homes.
The historic town of Beaumaris, complete with its unfinished castle and Victorian prison, is a popular stop on many Anglesey tours. Elsewhere, the grand Plas Newydd estate and 20th-century Britannia Bridge provide many photo opportunities, while Red Wharf Bay and Benllech beach serve as prime relaxation spots. Whether you're considering a private tour or a stay in one of the many cosy Anglesey holiday cottages that are dotted across the island, you'll find an irresistible mix of adventure, history and nature here.
Be sure to look out for the local specialties while holidaying on the island.
These include Anglesey Eggs - a tasty combination of eggs, potatoes, cheese and leeks - and the beloved Anglesey oysters. Enjoy them fresh every opportunity you have: it's not every day you can enjoy them straight out of the ocean!
If you get the chance, pay a visit to the monthly farmers market held at Menai Bridge. You'll find plenty of fresh local fare to sample and delicious gifts to take home.
Believe it or not, Anglesey has its own vineyard. The island provides an ideal climate for growing grapes, and the finished result can be enjoyed on a tour and tasting.
Every-intriguing and full of surprises, the food and drink in Anglesey is sure to impress.
