If you came across the Menai or Britannia Bridge onto the island you will have passed a sign welcoming you to "Mon Mam Cymru" literally to Anglesey – Mother of Wales. A generation ago Anglesey was that – as a rich farming community her produce could feed the population of Wales as a mother feeds her children. Our farmers are still here but Anglesey's evolution means it is now an expanding and popular holiday destination with a huge range of accommodation, places to visit and things to do.

local-1Coasteering Wales is based just outside the town of Holyhead on the West coast of this beautiful Island. Anglesey has over 125 miles of beautiful coastline, and is regarded as the jewel in the crown of Wales. The wealth of the island's natural environment is demonstrated by it having 22,000 hectares classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, 60 Sites of Special Scientific Interest, 4 National Nature Reserves, 3 Local Nature Reserves, 3 Special Protection Areas and 5 candidate Special Areas of Conservation.

Anglesey's coastline is dotted with hidden coves, award winning blue flag beaches and offers a very diverse coastline, from the rolling sand dunes of Newborough Warren to the towering sea cliffs of Gogarth that rise out of the Irish Sea.

Pre Cambrian rock (some of the oldest rocks in Britain) covers approximately two thirds of the Island. Anglesey has a greater proportion of lowlands than any other county in Wales, with Holyhead Mountain being the highest point at just 220 meters.

There are abundant and well preserved remains from the Neolithic and Bronze ages, with roman forts, and native settlements from the Celtic and Christian heritage. All in all, Anglesey is an island with plenty to see and do or to take some time out and chill away from the hustle and bustle of city life!
