    Going to Anglesey at half term and wondering if there's any 'must see' places or things to do that I might otherwise miss...

    So, you can mis-type and fail the robot test, but your thread still appears. Nice work!

    Hollyhead and Beaumamaris are lovely places if you get a nice day. Penmaenmawr is beautiful for walks too.

    Southstack lighthouse is great if you've got any interest in puffins and birdlife in general. Plus the walk down there and views are well worth it if you are able.

    The bridge on the way back was my favourite bit last time I went.

    Southstack is amazing, Pili Palas is a great butterfly farm and petting zoo, Rhosneigr or Rhoscolyn beachs are lush, Anglesey Sea Zoo used to be great (but I've not been for 20 years).

    If you're going off the island, Caernarfon, Beaumaris, Harlech and Conwy castles are close and worth a visit, Llandudno is a classic resort (home town bias), and you can get to Portmeirion in an hour.

    Menai or Britannia?

    Anglesea Sea Zoo used to be great years ago, but I went recently (last year) and was disappointed. Might be OK if you've not been before.

    Drive from Harlech to Anglesey and marvel. Or the other way, but the approach to Snowdonia north of Barmouth is sublime.

    I have fond memories of the cliff walks around South Stack lighthouse.

    I can also recommend the beach by Rhosneigr. Not sure it is a 'must see', but it is a lovely beach.

    We're staying just outside Beaumaris.
    Isn't the village with the longest name on by Anglesey?

    Yeah, but you have to pronounce it right to be allowed on the island.

    Where I live! :D

    A lot of good suggestions already made. I'd add Newborough Beach, which is lovely. Eat at Dylan's in Menai Bridge or the Bull in Beaumaris.

    On the mainland, basically all of Snowdonia. Can advise more specifically if you say what sort of thing you're after.

    If you're interested in (pre)history I recommend paying the excavated iron age village at Din Lligwy a visit, plus there's loads of good burial chambers and standing stones etc all over the island. Also Newborough beach (for its forest and views of Snowdonia), Ynys Llanddwyn and Beaumaris castle are all worth visiting.

    Stuck in A&E so allow me a meandering story.

    We went camping there and found an odd pub in a small village. Possibly called rosie's. It had shiny reflective metal tables and coronation street on on a massive TV. Next door was a large but empty curry house. It was surprisingly tasty and way spicier than we expected. Several more pints later we headed home and got into the tents radiating jalfrezi warmth within beer blankets.

    Once this wore off and the temperature had dropped below zero, the outside of the tents froze over and we thought we were going to freeze to death.

    But we didn't and the next day I saw a lizard on the way to the light house.
