The charming village of Newborough, on the south-western tip of Anglesey in North Wales, is a perfect place for all the family. Just 19 minutes from Menai Bridge, Newborough can be easily accessed off the A55 road.
The splendid Newborough beach can be found through the Newborough Forest, with glorious sands stretching from end to end. The beach has a Blue Flag Award to its name and is a perfect place to swim, sunbathe, build sandcastles and kite surf. At low tide, you can walk along to Llanddwyn Island, where the ruins of a church and convent built by St Dwynwen, Welsh patron saint of lovers, still stand. A beautiful place with spectacular views across the sea, this island should definitely not be missed.
Visitors can find Tacla Taid, the Anglesey Transport and Agriculture Museum, nearby along the B4419 road towards Llangaffo. The museum is the largest of its kind in Wales and is both educational and enjoyable for children. If the museum does not appeal to you, then the Anglesey Model Village, along the A4080 towards Dwyran, surely will. Children will love running around in this 'village' for hours, discovering new parts of it they hadn't noticed before.
The Anglesey Coastal Path, a major tourist attraction, runs close by, with this section from the Menai Strait, through Llanddwyn Island and on to Holy Island arguably some of the best coastal walking in Wales.....
