Heading off there for a few days with DH and DS who is just walking. Where can we visit? Actually we live only about 50 miles away but to be honest I think you often miss the good days out that are right under your nose! Any thoughts/ suggestions?

OK can't spell...but

great beach at nevfen & esp morfa nevfen
Whistling sands is lovely
Great rock pools (can't remember which beach - but most have some)
Walk out to see the seals at the golf club
Go to the place the prisoner was filmed - Port merion

Port merrion is lovely yes!
Think the beaches are all ok too!
Is it Morfa Nefen that gets cut off by the sea?

we found the sea zoo really dull but if u combine with the farm thats next door it will use up an afternoon....treaddur bay has the best beach i have ever been to, its lovely....beautiful sand and lovely views.

If u know treaddur bay well, carry on past the main beach down the windy road that goes past the posh house on the left. About 1/2 miles down the road is a beach u ghet to down a steep slope, its SO nice and less well known so bit less ppl too.

castles yes but not witha little one if u have to take a where for it to go we took ours when we went to beaumaris castle and we hd to take it in turns to walk round it.

pili palas- butterfly palace
hen blas- arm
foel farm- farm
sea zoo
penrhos nature reserve- holyhead
promenade in Bangor- fantastic for letting litle ones toddle safely without being able to run away
welsh mounain zoo- colwyn bay
greenwood center- ust outside caernarfon
beaces all over the place- cable bay is beautiful as is newborough, los of tourists go to benllech, traeth lligwy- so you have touristy things there like arcades and shops whereas newborough beach itself only has loos.

Directions to the above can be found by googling the name but I have been to them all with a toddler/baby and had fun.
