    Worth a visit before you come onto the 'mainland'.
    We went there a couple of years ago as 'big kids' and spent longer than we thought with butterflies and birds landing on us and lots to see.
    Did not try the cafe so can't comment on the food but the visit was a big hit.

    Another trip worth doing in North Wales.

    Welsh people are great hosts (almost as good as the Irish) make sure they know you are fellow celts!

    Llangollen on the A5 has several good campsites.

    You can take a horse drawn canal boat trip, climb to the castle,take a steam train up the Dee valley. Plas Madoc 5 miles away (10 minutes away by buses running every 15 minutes) has a leisure pool with a tropical lagoon with waves, surf and a slide.

    Llangollen Wharf There is a small pool too in Chirk and a bigger one in Wrexham 30 minutes away (by the same bus) .
    As your girls like water they can also canoe on the river Dee.

    Trearddur bay. A small, secluded beach but has that safe feeling about it. You can be anywhere on the beach and see everything going on.

    Greenwood Forest Park, after leaving Anglesey over Britannia bridge take first exit and follow signs. You can spend all day there on the nature based activities. Theres a campsite nearby.

    Llanberis Lake and railway
    . Relax by the lake, hire a row boat, picnic in the park, take a ride on the steam train. One of our favourite places.

    Betwys y Coed. Another small village with bags of charm. Usually packed with tourists but worth chilling out by the river bank for an hour or two.

    Conwy castle. You can walk around the perimeter walls then picnic on the lawns for free. There are several good chip shops and pubs. There is sometimes entertainment laid on outside the Liverpool Arms overlooking the little harbour.

    There are campsites within a few minutes of all these places. Lots of visitor attractions are appearing, everywhere it seems, the more you look, the more you find. Yes, I like North Wales :)
