As a small island, Anglesey has the unique offering of short car journeys: you can reach most parts of it within half an hour. And with nothing further than a stone’s throw away, you have the ability to visit the many bays and villages it provides. Here are a few reccomendations:
- The White Eagle Pub: pub grub with a gastro twist and a cute story to go with it! Timpsons’ owner, Mr Timpson (you never would’ve guessed that one) bought his local pub to save it and gave it a 21st century spin. From the lush lawn adored with deckchairs and space hoppers, to the fine food (I recommend the spicy lamb burger, but you really can’t leave without trying the chips), it’s definitely worth popping in for some lunch.
- Trearddur Bay: my favourite bay on Anglesey and one I remember visiting when I was younger. You have to go round the bay to find the best beach, but once you get there, be sure to soak up some rays alongside the watersports fanatics that regularly flock there.
- Newborough Warren Nature Reserve: it may not sound like the most fascinating beach of the bunch, but nestled between the red squirrel reserve and the forest fumbles lies a pretty lovely beach. And not to worry, whilst you wouldn’t be short of bushes, there are proper toilet facilities, making the Warren somewhere you could happily spend your days. Plus, you may even spot Kate and Wills taking Prince George for a seaside stroll.
