Wonderfully situated at the south end of Holy Island, Anglesey, in a 7 acre Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and 300m from a beach. The Centre is an excellent base for so much in the outdoors and is immediately adjacent to the Anglesey Coastal Path - good walking on a varied and accessible coast. All around there are prehistoric remains, spectacular geology, a wide range of habitats and species of marine life and plants, and excellent bird watching opportunities. For kayakers there are classic sea tours, overfalls, playwaves, surf and rockhopping. Climbers have Gogarth nearby and Rhoscolyn offering all grades in an attractive setting. Divers can beach launch for wrecks and fish. Our Centre has two self-contained units and camping with toilets and showers. Careful energy use is encouraged, with composting and recycling. Nearby Holyhead has rail links and ferries to Ireland. Walking distance to pub.
