Anglesey - Wales

Not so long ago, Laerke went on holidays to Anglesey island, a place I've never heard about before.
These are some of the bays on the island, Bull Bay, Trearddur Bay, Red Wharf Bay, Cemaes Bay and Benllech Bay.

Anglesey or Ynys Môn  is an island off the north-west coast of Wales. With an area of 276 square miles (715 km2), Anglesey is by far the largest island of Wales and the fifth-largest island surrounding Great Britain (and the largest outside Scotland). Anglesey is also the largest island in the Irish Sea by area, and the second most populous island in the Irish Sea (after the Isle of Man). The population at the 2011 census was 69,751. Two bridges span the Menai Strait, connecting the island to the mainland: the Menai Suspension Bridge, designed by Thomas Telford in 1826, and the Britannia Bridge.
Almost three-quarters of Anglesey's inhabitants are Welsh speakers and Ynys Môn, the Welsh name for the island, is used for the UK Parliament and National Assembly constituencies. - in: wikipedia
