Holyhead Marina, gateway to North Wales sailing, lies in the south west corner of Holyhead harbour. One of the UK's harbour's of refuge, access is possible in all weathers and at all states of the tide.
There really is nothing better than spending a lazy day at the beach! And being an island surrounded by 125 miles of stunning coastline, beaches are something that Anglesey does extremely well.
Whether that great beach day means loading yourself up with ball games, buckets, spades and fishing nets, or simply involves packing a tasty picnic and enjoying the surrounding beauty, our award winning beaches make the perfect backdrop. From long sandy stretches like Red Wharf Bay where it’s sea, sand and sky for as far as the eye can see, to more intimate rugged bays such as Porth Dafarch or Porth Swtan / Church Bay, where cliff paths and rock pools are just waiting to be explored.
And with our Blue Flag beaches offering so much to do, you could challenge yourself to a sandcastle competition at Benllech, don your wetsuit and hit the waves for some windsurfing at Rhosneigr or Trearddur Bay, or discover the legends of Santes Dwynwen and gaze upon the breath-taking views of Snowdonia while you paddle at Llanddwyn Island.
Anglesey Coastal Path
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is a developing long distance route that follows much of the island’s coastline. The path primarily caters for walkers however cyclists and horse riders can also enjoy certain sections.
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which covers 95% of the coast.

Anglesey Circuit / Trac Môn
Whether you are visiting the Circuit as a competitor, spectator, for driving instruction or as part of a corporate activity day, you are assured of a day to remember.
It is one of the few circuits to be designed and constructed with an entirely new concept. We have taken full advantage of the undulating landscape and created a circuit with imaginative cambers, a blend of fast sections, technically challenging mid range corners complemented with two hairpin bends and a 10% banked corner. The alternative circuit configurations enable Anglesey Circuit to offer the ideal facility for the wide variety of events that we host.
