Anglesey – Family Fun Island
Pack the buckets and spades away for the day and start to explore Anglesey. There are masses of family friendly walks and some of them are pushchair and wheelchair friendly. There are easy cycle routes to explore, The Anglesey Coastal Path winds its way around 125 miles of Anglesey coast and much of it is easy for little feet. Visit all the lighthouses and RNLI stations to understand the maritime history of such an incredible island.
If you feel the need to head indoors then there are masses of places to visit, ensuring the whole family has fun. Explore the mysteries of sea life at the Sea Zoo then say hello to the farm animals at Foel Farm in Brynsiencyn or the magical world of animals at Pili Palas in Menai Bridge. All these activities are inside but have a large amount of outside fun as well. Suitable for all ages.
Explore the history of Beaumaris by conquering Beaumaris Castle then walk along the Victorian pier to dangle crabbing lines over the railings – great for making those everlasting memories. Visit Red Boat Ice Cream Parlour and challenge your taste buds – with so many flavours to choose from it will be hard to resist the double scoop option.
For families who love anything to do with cars and motorbikes then pop along to Trac Môn and watch the petrol heads race. The atmosphere is exhilarating, the noise incredible and the adrenalin rush is awe inspiring!
Fancy having a go at racing but perhaps just a little slower than Trac Môn – visit Cartio Môn at Bodedern, where you can hire a go kart and race against each other. There are even little go karts for toddlers to ensure even they have a chance to speed!
