Places in Anglesey & the North Coast
Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn)
At 276 sq miles, the Isle of Anglesey is Wales' largest island and bigger than any in England. It's a popular destination for visitors with miles of inspiring coastline, hidden beaches, chocolate-box villages and Wales' greatest concentration of ancient sites.
Wales' biggest seaside resort straddles a flat peninsula, with long sandy beaches on either side. The twin humps of ancient mountains, the Great Orme and Little Orme, loom over the graceful Victorian wedding-cake architecture of the seafront buildings that line the sweeping 2-mile prom for half its length.
