A small island of around 400 square miles connected to the Welsh mainland by two bridges, it is an area of dramatic and diverse scenery from sheer cliffs, to beautiful safe beaches, lakes, mountains (albeit small!) and beautiful rolling countryside. Anglesey has one of the oldest rock formations in the world dating from pre-cambrian times, and has history, geology and archaeology in abundance. Geocaching is now a very popular pastime with many caches hidden on the island.
