It really isn’t any wonder that over 220 square miles of Anglesey’s unspoilt coast and landscapes have been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Whether you want tranquil green space interspersed with a carpet of colourful flowers, or the unrivalled beauty of our towering cliffs, home to hundreds of nesting seabirds, Anglesey really does think of everyone!

Walk along the coast to marvel at mossy headlands, grassy dunes, bays and estuaries or head inland to discover lakes, marshes and woodland. And with nature reserves, country parks and special areas of interest right on your doorstep it is easy to see the wildlife literally buzzing around.

There are many fantastic places to experience nature here, such as exploring Anglesey’s largest fen, Cors Erddreiniog, where amongst the lively reed beds you’ll find Fly Orchid, Carnivorous Sundew and a whole host of butterflies, moths and dragonflies. Likewise, the Llyn Cefni Reservoir comes alive with the sounds of warblers, wren and the odd Kingfisher, while the dunes around Newborough Forest and Warren team with butterwort, dwarf adder’s tongue and shore dock, as well as some great crested newts and the odd medicinal leech.

We have provided a list of some of our most beautiful and interesting natural landscapes which you might like to explore.
