Year of the Sea
2018 is Wales’s ‘Year of the Sea’. It’s a theme that fits the Isle of Anglesey like a glove – and in more ways than you might have thought.
Who can resist a stunning stretch of coast? Just picture it, the seabirds calling as the wind carries them overhead, the feel of the warm sand between your toes and the unmistakable scent of salty water in the air as the tide slowly inches its way up onto the shore.
Then there are our legendary landscapes and seascapes – especially the latter, a stunning 125-mile stretch of coastline designated an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. Threaded all the way by a coast path, it’s a succession of big, bold sandy bays and intimate coves, rocky headlands and nature reserves.
They are living landscapes and seascapes too, rich in wildlife and buzzing with all kinds of adventures and activities. Go cliff walking at South Stack, take a RIB ride (that’s in a Rigid Inflatable Boat) along the Menai Strait, gallop along the beach on horseback or go coasteering for the ultimate climb-and-dive combo… legendary experiences all, we think.
Taste also comes into it. We’re an island famous for our award-winning restaurants, food festivals and local produce like Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt, the choice of top chefs from London to Los Angeles.
