Rhosneigr is a pretty village on the rugged coast of the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. Within walking distance of Rhosneigr holiday cottages, its three magnificent beaches are home to rockpools, vast stretches of golden sand and safe water for swimming. In the village centre, there are a variety of pubs, restaurants and cafes. Sullivan’s Cafe, Wine Bar & Restaurant is an atmospheric spot for lunch or dinner, a stone's throw from the sea, while nearby, Sandy's Bar & Cafe and the Oyster Catcher are popular spots for evening cocktails.
Most holiday cottages in Rhosneigr are within walking distance of the coast. Winner of the Green Coast seaside award, which celebrates unspoiled coastal areas, the village's main beach lies on the western shore. Families can while away a day building sandcastles, playing in the dunes or enjoying one of the many water sports available in the area. Surf shops are dotted throughout the village with wetsuits and equipment for hire. Just outside Rhosneigr, The Anglesey Golf Club has sweeping views over the coast.
There's plenty to do on self-catering holidays in Rhosneigr. A 30-minute drive along the North Wales Expressway leads to the South Stack Lighthouse. Set among dramatic cliffs, the steep ascent to the lighthouse offers spectacular views along the coast. Many seabirds nest in the surrounding cliffs, including puffins. Active holidaymakers can climb the highest mountain in Wales, Mount Snowdon, an hour's drive south of Anglesey in Snowdonia.
Anglesey is the seventh largest island in the British Isles, and the largest island in the Irish Sea. The ferry port of Holyhead, on the nearby Holy Island, welcomes more than 2 million passengers every year, and remains a largely Welsh-speaking area, in an unspoiled corner of Wales.
