Things to do on Anglesey / Ynys Môn

by | Jun 15, 2023

 Ynys Môn has so much to offer this summer, both in and out doors. There are old beautiful favourites that come high up TridAdvisor’s listings – like Newborough, Penmon and South Stack – but here we’ve rounded up a handful of hidden gems on the island, from a sauna on the beach to an ancient church on its own island. 

Plas Cadnant Hidden Gardens

 

A historic garden under restoration, situated between Menai Bridge and Beaumaris.

In 1996, the present owner bought the 200 acre Plas Cadnant Estate and work began on the restoration of the historic garden and grounds. Since then large parts of the gardens have undergone a spectacular transformation and have been restored to their former glory.

Often described as one of North Wales’ best kept secrets. Find the gardens in Menai Bridge.

 

& Caws

Our go-to stop off for picnics or a speedy supper is And Caws.

Freshly baked foccacias, filled with local cheeses and chutnies, as well as a lovely range of fruit, beer, wine and gifts to take home. Find the shop in Menai Bridge.

Eglwys Cwyfan

 

Simply stunning from every angle. Amazingly, this tiny Anglesey church dates to the 12th century. Though when originally built it was part of the mainland, it now sits proudly on a tiny island.

Make sure to check the tides before visiting if you want to get to the island. Find the church in Aberffraw.

Sauna Bach

 

A wood fired sauna on the beach, beautifully built by hand, with the opportunity to enjoy the breathtaking scenery around you.

Find the sauna at Porth Tyn Tywyn, one of the best beaches on Anglesey. Reconnect with nature and yourself, and cool off afterwards with a dip in the sea.

You’ll often find one of our favourite food trucks there too – Dreamboat – which serves an array of homegrown vegan and veggie fare.

Wild Seaweed Baths at Halen Môn

For hundreds of years, people have been bathing in seaweed for its nurturing, restorative and healing properties. In warm water, seaweed releases its mineral-dense oils, offering rich relaxation, soothing tired muscles and encouraging escape from the everyday.

This year, using the pure water generated as a by-product of our sea salt harvesting process, we are the first company in Wales to offer a bespoke outdoor bathing experience, celebrating the unparalleled view in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Don your swimming costume and soak in the power of seaweed in your own private upcycled whiskey barrel.

You’ll find the barrels at our Saltcote in Brynsiencyn.
