Beaumaris has an attractive waterfront location and a romantic castle lording it over a pretty collection of Georgian buildings, all set against the magical Snowdonia backdrop. It has lots of options for eating and drinking and is home to some excellent little boutiques, delis, cafes, and galleries. The town abounds with history and is today growing in popularity with a new generation as a center for water sports, sailing, and walking. Beaumaris Castle is the last of Edward I’s great castles of North Wales, and the largest. It is a perfect example of a concentrically planned castle and a World Heritage Site. Beaumaris Courthouse and Gaol is a 400 year old courthouse and Victorian jail that houses the last treadwheel in Britain for hard labor prisoners. Boat operators run summer cruises from Beaumaris pier to Puffin Island. The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is a 125 mile coastal walking path that opened in 2006.
