Anglesey, United Kingdom

Travel to Anglesey

Anglesey (Welsh: Ynys Môn) is, by a large margin, the largest island in England and Wales at 276 sq mi (714km²) island just off the coast of northwestern Wales.

The Anglesey Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) has one of the most distinctive, attractive and varied landscapes in the British Isles. Anglesey was designated as an AONB in 1966 in order to protect the aesthetic appeal and variety of the island's coastal landscape and habitats from inappropriate development. The AONB is predominantly a coastal designation, covering most of the island's 125 mile coastline (including Llanddwyn), it contains rocky headlands, golden beaches, dunes, heaths and fine green countryside. Some of the beaches are recognised as being amongst the best in Great Britain and Europe. The AONB supports a wealth of wildlife such as choughs, grey seals, sea lavender and silver studded blue butterflies. There are also many areas protected for their nature conservation value, such as Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve, and several Sites of Special Scientific Interest. Anglesey also hosts a large number of holiday homes, which is controversial with year-round residents.
