Benllech Popular east-coast holiday centre with beautiful, golden-sanded beach backed by cliffs. That’s not all – around the headland there’s Red Wharf Bay (Traeth Coch), a massive 10 square miles in all at low tide, with waders and wildfowl in residence throughout the year. Brynsiencyn Village in heritage- and attractions-rich part of the island. Ancient sites include Neolithic Bodowyr Burial Chamber and earthworks of Caer Lêb and Castell Bryn Gwyn. But the biggest magnets are the modern ones. Brynsiencyn is home to two major attractions – Anglesey Sea Zoo and Foel Farm. Halen Môn Anglesey Sea Salt also based here – new visitor centre offers behind-the-scene tours. Cemaes The most northerly village in Wales – and one of the prettiest, with a perfect crescent of sand and old stone quay. The wild, rocky coast around Cemaes Bay (much of it National Trust) leads to neighbouring Cemlyn Bay with its nature reserve, lagoon-like lake and long spit of sand. The headland church at Llanbadrig, dedicated to St Patrick, is one of the oldest Christian sites in Wales. Nearby Wylfa Power Station’s visitor centre has an exhibition on nuclear power and nature trail. Refurbished Cemaes Heritage Centre is scheduled to reopen 2015. Holyhead Major Irish Sea port located on Holy Island, connected by an embankment. It’s at one end of the cross-country A5 – look out for the mini version of London’s Marble Arch at 75 www.visitanglesey.co.uk
