The Isle of Anglesey, where the druids of old held out stubbornly against the invading Romans, is rich in history and Welsh culture. A majority of the population here speaks the Welsh language. The county possesses the town with Europe's longest place name: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, or Llanfair-PG for short.

Anglesey, Wales

Located on the north-western corner of Wales and jutting into the Irish Sea, Anglesey is connected to the mainland by two bridges. Large swathes of this county's coastline are designated as Areas of National Beauty. The Anglesey Coastal Path, a walker's route around the island, passes through many of the county's key sights, including over 40 beaches that are well worth a visit.

Traeth Mawr beach, near Aberffraw village on the south-west of the island, is a beach notable for its extensive sand dunes. Combine natural beauty with history and visit Beaumaris beach, close to Beaumaris Castle on the south-east of the island. Construction on the began in the late 1200s, and the castle was to be a bulwark in Edward I's attempt to conquer north Wales. The castle was never completed but remains a striking landmark within easy distance of a beach with high water quality and good fishing opportunities.

The beach at Cemaes Bay on the north of Anglesey, has plenty to offer. Sand, rock pools, and conditions that suit windsurfing, sailing, and kayaking. Dogs are welcome during some parts of the year.
