Share YOUR Favourite Anglesey Tale

Visitors' experiences on Anglesey vary from person to person. It depends on the reasons that people come to visit in the first place.

Let me tell you what I really enjoy.

I enjoy meeting and talking to people who are either visiting the Island for the first time or have been visiting for decades.

I think it's quite clear by now that I love my Island Home and the stories that tie me to my special places:

Thomas Telford's glorious Menai Suspension Bridge really brings back warm memories of my Dad.

Dulas Beach is where I go to listen to the ducks settle down noisily for the night.

Cymyran Beach is the long, quiet beach where I go to dodge RAF jets and get a suntan on my legs.


Do YOU have a special place or a pleasant experience that you'd like to share? Is there a special reason why it's so important for you.

  • A childhood memory?

  • Something completely unexpected?

  • A SPOOKY TALE? Oo-er!

  • Maybe you found the perfect place to chill out and enjoy a glass of wine?

    It's easy. Just let me know...
