Anglesey's Coastline Enhancement Scheme

A £5.6 million project, funded by the European Union, the local council and the Welsh Assembly Government has been announced. The project to improve accessibility, coastal infrastructure and provide more information about isalnd's coastline will enhance the visitor experience and create tourism opportunities to boost the local economy.

Anglesey has a rich cultural heritage and I've listed some sites that we recommend you visit

Penmon Priory is thought to be an early medieval foundation and has a holy well associated with it.
St Pabo's church, Llanbabo is worth a visit to see the carved stone memorial to St Pabo.

Beaumaris Castle is located close to the water's edge and was the last link in the ring of defence to the north Wales seaboard built by Edward 1st. The castle remains largely intact.
