Three of Wales' five AONB's are in North Wales.

There are numerous activities available for those who enjoy outdoor activities. The North Wales Borderlands and Snowdonia offer a wide range of options for walking, climbing, and mountain biking. There are cycle paths in the nearby Llandegla Forest. Horse riding, fishing and birdwatching can also be enjoyed in the area.

he final thing I find remarkable about Beaumaris are the wonderful views afforded across the Menai Straight to the Snowdonia Mountains beyond - breathtaking scenery that can be enjoyed from within or outside the castle. Although Beaumaris lacks the spectacular siting of some of Edward's other north Wales castles, the beauty of the castle and surrounding countryside is undeniable. Beaumaris Castle has been designated a "World Heritage Site" because it represents a significant accomplishment in the art of medieval castle-building. The fact that it is also one of the prettier sites in Wales is a bonus that makes this castle well worth a visit. So, in your haste to see popular, touristy Caernarfon Castle, consider making the short drive from Caernarfon to Beaumaris for a totally unique castle experience!
