School group of people coasteering rocks on anglesey
Coasteering started back in the 1970’s and is now one of the most popular activities for all ages. It combines exploring the intertidal area of a rocky coast on foot or by swimming, with some climbing, scrambling and sea level traversing: the very nature of the coastline that is needed for coasteering demands aspects of all these activities. One of the most popular locations is at Porth Dafarch, just 10 minutes walk from Anglesey Outdoors

If Snowdonia is in cloud and rain, then chances are Gogarth will be fine, offering over 450 routes on sea cliffs which offer a unique climbing experience. There are classic routes unrivalled in the UK such as; The Cad, Dream of White Horses, & Mousetrap. If access is not possible because of the tidal state or seasonal bird nesting restrictions then Holyhead Mountain crags provide some good, though short routes. It offers difficult to the mid extremes grades on variable quality rock, with nearly 100 routes to choose from.


Man on a Windsurf in a rought sea on Anglesey
The prevailing south-west wind most common in the Irish Sea brings cross-on shore conditions to Rhosneigr . This regularly creates perfect wave riding and jumping conditions on the main beach. Other beaches worth visiting are at Rhosneigr Broad Beach and Newborough . Beginners can sail on Maelog Lake at Rhosneigr and speed sailors can launch from Four Mile Bridge when the tide is right. Introductory kitesurfing and windsurfing are available when conditions are right


Person underwater diving off the coast of Anglesey
For a small area, Holy Island can offer divers a wide choice of venues - fascinating shore dives and around half a dozen shallow wreck sites within a mile of shore for the beginner or intermediate level diver. Experienced divers wanting more of a challenge can venture into deeper waters to explore the wrecks further offshore. These are due to many treacherous rocks and the prevailing wind conditions. There are also some wrecks that were the result of U boats during the Second World War. Boat hire, gas refills and courses are all available from Holyhead and Trearddur Bay


Surfer idling in sea on Anglesey
There are several small coves along the western coast that pick up plenty of swell from the South West. Cable Bay near Aberffraw is popular, but due to its size is generally best before or after high tide. Broad Beach , Newborough , Trearddur , Porthdafarch and Church also offer good surf in the right conditions. Body Boarding or SUP (Paddle Boarding) are also popular when the surf is not quite right. Surfboards and SUP boards are available to hire from Anglesey Outdoors.
