Since 1966, most of Anglesey's 125 mile coastal zone has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Anglesy AONB is the largest in Wales covering a third of Anglesey including Holyhead Mountain and Mynydd Bodafon.
Unsurprisingly, the 2008 Anglesey Walking Festival
will be making the most of the island's stunning scenery with its rich and varied flora and fauna. All the walks are guided by professional, knowledgeable guides on hand to help you get the most from your experience. There will be the opportunity to spend evenings in the company of local historians and a chance to dine on local Welsh produce.
New for 2008 are four walks suitable for wheelchair users and an exciting programme of walks for schools.
The AONB designation serves the purpose of protecting the aesthetic appeal and variety of the islandís coastal landscape and habitats from inappropriate development.
The 8th Isle of Anglesey walking festival will be launched on May 24th with an open day at Plas Newydd, Llanfairpwll. More details will follow on the festival website
about the attempt to attract 3000 people to walk the coastal footpath for nine different charities during this day. Full details of the 2008 walks will shortly be available on the site.
