Solo travel rating: 1 (1 is easiest, 4 is most difficult. Please see chart below)
Languages spoken: Welsh, English
Reasons to go: It’s a magical Welsh island, last stand of the Druids against the Romans. Bright, sunny (or rainy, misty, cloudy) mornings offer great sea and country views on rambling coastal walks, punctuated by little country pubs and restaurants. One of the best – and dog friendly - is the White Eagle in Rhoscolyn on the island’s south east corner.
Explore seaside villages (Cemaes, Benllech) with beach-themed shops and an art gallery or two. Visit ancient castles at Beaumaris, or check out local farmer’s markets. Learn coasteering, sea fishing, kayaking or surfing (on some of the UK’s best beaches) at Rhosneigr.
Stay in five-star hotels in Trearddur Bay, friendly pubs or B&Bs – or try self-catering cottages.
In the evening, relax by sparkling, sunlit seas that stretch all the way to Ireland, and showcase the most amazing, glorious technicolor sunsets.
