Isle of Anglesey (Ynys Môn)

At 276 sq miles, the Isle of Anglesey is Wales' largest island, and bigger than any in England. A stronghold of Welsh language and culture, it's also a popular destination for visitors, with miles of inspiring coastline, secluded beaches and Wales' greatest concentration of ancient sites.

Over 85 sq miles of Anglesey – including almost all of its coastline – has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; hiking, beachcombing and water sports are all key attractions. Of the human-made landscape, the handsome Georgian town of Beaumaris is its most obviously appealing, but there are hidden gems scattered all over the island.
