The local area and things to do
The Cymyran Hotel couldn’t be better placed as a base from which to explore the many attractions waiting for visitors in North Wales.
Things to do on Anglesey
Anglesey, the largest island off mainland Britain, has much to offer its guests, both on land and water – beautiful countryside, award-winning beaches, a wide range of water sports, horse riding, golf, fishing, walking both inland and on the Anglesey Coastal Path (which can be reached in just a few minutes from the hotel), and many more visitor attractions.

The Local Area and Cymyran Beach
Hotel Cymyran is just a few minutes away from the tranquil and unspoilt Cymyran Beach, from which the Hotel takes its name.
Cymyran beach, which extends along the coast from Rhosneigr to Plas Cymyran and the Inland Sea, is well known for its scenic beauty and tranquility. Part of the coastal area is even designated as a site of specific scientific interest.
In fact, there are spectacular beaches all round the Island’s coast.
Walking: Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is a 125 mile route which takes in the majority of the Anglesey and Holy Island coast line. The path falls within a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) which covers 95% of the coast and passes through landscape that includes a mixture of farmland, coastal heath, dunes, salt-marsh, foreshore, cliffs and a few small pockets of woodland.
Whilst the path is primarily for walkers, cyclists and horse riders can also enjoy certain sections.

Aside from the Coastal Path, this corner of the Island offers numerous other walks, many of which can begin directly from the Hotel.
Lakes Nearby ideal for walking
For example, there are a number of lakes nearby, part of the Valley Wetlands reserve managed by the RSPB, which are surrounded by footpaths. These reed-fringed lakes give you the opportunity to see wildfowl all year round. Look out for tufted ducks, pochards, shovelers, gadwalls and grebes which all breed here. If you come in winter, you will also see wigeons and goldeneyes.
Winner of both a Rural Seaside Award and a Green Coast Award, Rhosneigr lies on Anglesey's western shore. With its two broad, sandy beaches, Traeth Crigyll and Broad Beach (Traeth Llydan), it is a popular centre for all water sports.
The village is well-served with shops and tourist facilities. Wind surfers, kite surfers and sailors all enjoy the area.
Why not walk from the Hotel, along the beach to Rhosneigr, for a spot of lunch?

The Hotel is close to RAF Valley. While it is a relatively small station in terms of personnel numbers, it is the training base for our future fast jet combat pilots. The majority of these pilots are RAF with a smaller portion being Royal Navy pilots, destined for Joint Force Harrier.
The station is also home to a Sea King Search and Rescue helicopter, and a Search and Rescue Training Unit. The training flights during the week make for spectacular entertainment – keep an eye out for the Red Arrows, which can occasionally be seen training overhead!
