Power play Feel the energy at Wylfa Power Station near Cemaes. Going nuclear is definitely the unusual option on an island as green and unspoilt as Anglesey, but the station’s visitor centre offers a fascinating exploration of atomic power. Interactive exhibits detail the development of power stations and highlight the environmental credentials of nuclear generation. Once you’ve investigated the visitor centre, you can enjoy a wildlife-spotting walk on the station’s countryside trail for evidence that nature and nuclear can mix. One fine bay There are countless hidden coves around Anglesey, but Porth Wen on the north coast may be the most unusual. Find your way down an unmarked, little-travelled path and you’ll discover a ruined harbour and the remains of a 19th-century brickworks. Long abandoned to nature, the sounds of industry have been replaced by the lap of the waves and the wind whipping past the crumbling chimneystacks and furnaces, giving this once-bustling site an eerie solitude. If all that gets too much, you can distract yourself with some spectacular sea views from the dazzling white shingle beach. Want to explore further?
