The perfect drive Our golfing scene leaves other places green with envy. Make a day of it at one of our 18-hole courses, such as at Bull Bay, the most northerly club in Wales. Sample the fast-draining heathland of Anglesey Golf Club and the tree-lined parkland of Henllys, both of which come with eye-catching views over Snowdonia. Or test yourself against the best at Holyhead, designed by legendary course architect James Braid. If you’re pushed for time, we’ve also got some great nine-hole tracks like Baron Hill and Storws Wen. The wheel thing Get on your bike for a street-level view of our beautiful island. Anglesey isn’t a particularly hilly place, so cyclists of all levels can enjoy getting about on two wheels. The 11-mile Lôn Las Cefni route takes you on quiet roads and dedicated cycle tracks through some of our most picturesque scenery, including Dingle Nature Reserve and wildlife-packed Malltraeth Marsh. Or head north and tackle Trwydd Copr (the Copper Trail), a 34-mile loop through some spectacular Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty landscapes. Find out more about the cycling scene with our Anglesey by Bike brochure, available online and in Tourist Information Points. Don’t worry if you haven’t brought your wheels. Hire shops like Cybi Bikes in Holyhead can quickly get you riding. Hot to trot Don’t feel like pedalling? Saddle up for a horse ride and let someone else do the hard work. Trot along the banks of the Menai Strait at Anglesey Riding Centre, which offers fun on horseback for novices and experts alike. Or head to Porth y Post Riding Stables near Holyhead, which runs lessons in everything from show jumping to cross-country riding. Hit the gas If you’re more into petrol than ponies, get revved up at Anglesey Circuit. The purpose-built track near Aberffraw on the island’s west coast hosts a range of high-octane motorbike and car racing events throughout the year. You can become part of the action too. Get behind the wheel (or handlebars) on a track day to indulge your need for speed. There are more rubber-burning adventures on offer at Cartio Môn near Holyhead. Racers of all ages can take to the track in zippy go-karts for their own mini-Grand Prix experience. Horses, golf courses, mountain bikes and motor racing. You don’t have to get your feet wet to have fun on Anglesey.
