Windsurfing at Rhosneigr

Why not try windsurfing? Conditions at Rhosneigr are known to be some of the best in the UK for windsurfing. An absolute beginner can usually manage to do some windsurfing within a taster session. You can have fun on the water and perhaps even develop a new passion! Sessions are run by qualified instructors; include the kit you need with tuition on windsurfing and water safety as well as third-party insurance for the duration of the course.

Coasteering on Anglesey is a rapidly growing adventure sport that has become very popular. It combines jumping, open water swimming and scrambling along the Anglesey coastline to explore rocks, sea caves and marine life. Half Day Adventures are available for groups of more than four with Open Adventure Sessions for individuals and small groups. Coasteering is the perfect activity for learning about the environment and yourself through sport. Come over to Anglesey for a holiday and enjoy a daytime adventure coasteering or windsurfing, then return to a cosy cottage in the evening. For more details go to


Ribride offers you an exciting adventure of a different kind in one of their high-powered boats. A series of high-speed turns in these fast boats will put spray in your hair and a smile on your face. The one-hour scheduled adventure tours operate along the Menai Strait from Menai Bridge, Beaumaris and Caernarfon and provide wonderful and exhilarating boat trips. Other excursions and private charters are available. Choose a self-catering short break over a winter weekend – Rib Ride trips are running from Menai Bridge on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Cartio Môn

Cartio Mon is the major outdoor go-karting centre on Anglesey just off the A55 near Holyhead which operates all year round. Just like Formula One, the karts are shod with slick, intermediate and wet weather tyres to suit the conditions of the day. The circuit also features floodlights for nighttime driving. Cartio Môn provides fun for the whole family with a toddler and junior karts to suit all age ranges. Book a holiday cottage for the school holidays and let the kids have fun. There are Cub Carts for children from 3-8 and Cadet Karts for children over 8 years of age (minimum 1.3 metres tall).

The Anglesey Riding Centre

The Anglesey Riding Centre at Dwyran has a large indoor arena and a large outdoor all-weather floodlit arena. Five miles of private bridleways alongside the Menai Strait with stunning views of Caernarfon Castle and the Snowdonia Mountains provide a great introduction to horse riding. Beyond the bridleways, the sands of Abermenai will allow experienced riders to let their horses stretch their legs. For more details go to
