HOW TO USE THE ABOVE MAP

(Just in case you're not familiar with a Google Map)

Place the cursor over a point on the map and 'Double-Click'. This will magnify that location you have targetted. Keep 'Double-Clicking' until as much detail as Google allows is revealed to you.

The crucifrom iconography on the top left are: 'four corners of the wind'. Below this is 'Zoom In' and 'Zone Out'.

On the top right of the map image you'l see: Map, Sat and Ter. Right,

  • Map is obviously a map.
  • Sat is obviously a satellite image of the lovely Ynys Môn, country roads, beaches rivers and stuff ...
  • Ter is ... I'm no techno geek, but for me 'Ter' stands for Topographic Map (i.e. a lumpy map).

  • WHAT SIN A NAME?

    Ynys = Island. Môn comes from Mona, which is a name that was given to the Island by the Romans. The Roman soldiers didn't like Mona very much. In fact your average battle-hardened Latin Dog Soldier was generally terrified of what lived on The Island - the Druids.

    But when it came to finally attacking and conquering Mona, they discovered that the it wasn't the Druids that terrified them, it was their women. Let that be a warning to any wanton visitors who fancy trying to conquer our Island ladies.


    The name Anglesey, it is believed, is named after a Viking king called, 'ONGLE'. I understand 'SEY' stands for 'Island' or 'kingdom' (e.g. Surtsey, Guernsey).

    Hence, 'ONGLE'S SEY' - 'Ongles's Island'.



    The glorious Coastal Path traipses around almost all of the island's coast and many of you have walked at least a good portion of its length.

    Recently, I had a conversation with one of the people from Menter Môn who created the path and it appears that it as extended the visitor season almost all-year round.

    Whatever the weather you will always find someone walking along some length of the path, as hikers, amblers or naturalists. That's Naturalists and not Naturists, in case some of you get some daft ideas in your heads.



    WEATHER & MARITIME SPORTS


    The prevailing wind is South Westerly with Winter winds ranging from the bitterly cold North West to North East.

    We do have weather. Quite a lot of it to be honest. With the wilder weather really suiting Sailing, Surfers, Windsurfers, Kite-Surfers and Kayakers.

    For best surf conditions on the Western Coast allow the weather to build up for a few days and then head for:

  • Llanddwyn
  • Abeffraw
  • Rhosneigr
  • Trearddur Bay
  • For best surf conditions on the Eastern Coast again wait a few days for a NNE wind to build up and then head for Lligwy.
