Area Of Natural Beauty (AONB)
Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are areas across Britain which beauty needs protecting. They can be found in 3 destinations in North Wales; Clwydian Range and Dee Valley, Llyn and Anglesey.
It really is no surprise that the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley secured the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status. The first encounter many people have of the range is when driving through a small part of it on the A55. The encounter is short, but memorable – and it really is the tip of the iceberg. Exploring the range is an incredible experience, the rolling hills, untouched countryside and stunning views make for an unforgettable experience.
A quarter of the Llyn Peninsula’s dynamic coastline is a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coastline is a favourite among walkers who can explore it all thanks to the Welsh Coast Path. Along the network of paths you’ll discover stunning scenery, nature reserves and unique dune systems.
Almost all of Anglesey’s 125 mile coastline is an Area of Outstanding natural Beauty. Within the designated Are of Outstanding Natural Beauty are three stretches of Anglesey’s heritage coast. Along the island’s coastline, you’ll discover everything from cliffs to nature reserves. The marine life is in abundance, and the Welsh Coast Path surrounds the island – giving walkers complete access.
