Anglesey (Môn) is the largest of the Welsh islands, situated in the north west corner of  Wales. This internationally recognised Geopark covers some 720 square kilometres and has 201 kilometres of coastline.  The Geopark territory points to a spectacular geological heritage. Geological sites (Geosites) have been selected  for scientific quality, rarity, aesthetic appeal and educational value. Their interest may also be archaeological, ecological, historical, or cultural.

 

With rocks spanning 4 Eras and 12 Geological periods, 1,800 million years of history has fashioned more than 100 rock types.  Such is the variety of shapes and types, present through at least four mountain building periods, that casual visitors and local people alike cannot but marvel at the magnificient colours and structures visible around the coast of this magic isle.  Explore and discover this outstanding geo-heritage, which the island derives its local and regional distinctiveness and character.  

 

By taking a tour along the coastline, which is nationally recognised as an area of outstanding beauty, using the prestigous coastal path allows access to 90% of Anglesey's geological highlights.  Most of the coast is accessible to all, be it the seasoned walker rambling the entire 125 miles or the casual visitor dipping into one or more of the scenically beautiful 'honeypot' sites along its length.  There are a range of geotrails and picnic areas and thought provoking, informative displays and tactile exhibits which encourage adults and children alike learn about the wonder of the world around them.
