Over the moon: catch a sunrise or sunset in North Wales…

Seeing a sunrise or sunset in a stunning setting such as North Wales really is special and can be a holiday highlight. Some of my favourite holidays include memories of the most spectacular sunrises, or more often sunsets – as getting up early whilst on holiday is sometimes easier said than done.

For a sunrise pick a place, check the weather, set an alarm (I know an alarm is a forbidden word during a holiday, but trust us on this one), and get up and out early – you won’t regret it! Seeing the sun slowly creep up above the mountains of Snowdonia, or from the front at Beaumaris as the sun, beams stretch down the Menai Strait is truly breathtaking.

If joining the early morning chorus isn’t your thing, an unforgettable evening can be spent snuggled under a blanket, a flask of something warm in hand watching the sun go down. Just don’t forget your camera.
