Our Weekend Camping in Anglesey

Our Weekend Camping in Anglesey

We have just come back from a 3 night stay in Anglesey camping, I’ve not been to Anglesey since I was younger and I loved it. There’s so many beautiful beaches & towns and we will definitely be back soon. We stayed at the Golden Sunset in Benllech. The Campsite had amazing views out to the Irish Sea & there was plenty of families there with children so Finn was in his element. You can also go crabbing on the rocks right by the campsite which Finn really enjoyed. My only criticism would be that on the Saturday night it was really noisy with some groups being quite rowdy but the Sunday night was lovely once they had gone. Finn’s a heavy sleeper so it didn’t wake him. There was plenty of showers, just no electrical hook up so bear that in mind. We walked the coastal path to Benllech, which was beautiful but a bit rocky so not really suitable for prams. We didn’t eat in Benllech, other than the chippy near Tesco the golden fry which was lovely. The Tesco is open till 11pm each evening which is handy.

On the second day we headed to Beaumaris which is a beautiful coastal town, the views over the Menai straits to Snowdonia are amazing. We had a walk around the town & Finn loved the park near the castle. The highlight for me was the boat trip out to Puffin Island. We used Seacoast Safari’s and the whole experience was fantastic. We saw puffins, oyster catchers, seals & plenty of sea birds but the absolute highlight for us was seeing Dolphins. It really was an unforgettable experience. The captain was brilliant sailing round in search of them and even stayed over our cruise time so we could get a good look at the Dolphins. Even without seeing the Dolphins I’d recommend the cruise we really enjoyed it.

On the Sunday we went to Southstack lighthouse, just past Holyhead. It was beautiful with amazing views and a lovely little cafe with a play area. It’s an RSPB centre so it was nice to go in there and chat about the wildlife. Finn enjoyed using the binoculars in there to see what he could spot. You can pay to walk up the lighthouse but I wasn’t sure if Finn would manage the steps, we’d definitely do this next time though.

After this we headed to a beautiful little beach, we didn’t even know the name but there’s plenty of little coves dotted about so definitely stop at a few If you can.

We then went to the Oyster catcher in Rhosneigr the food was really nice and it had a quirky outdoor seating area. I think if we went again I’d try and book for inside as there was a limited menu outside.

We finished our trip with a visit to Newborough Beach, this beach is beautiful with amazing views and a lovely walk through the forest. It costs 5 pound to park for the day, there’s toilets in the car park. There’s a few little food trucks but I’d definitely say take supplies if you’re staying all day. We walked to the lighthouse which was really nice with more beautiful views.

I’m definitely in love with Anglesey and we will be back soon, what are your must. Visit places? I’d love to know.
