Best walks on Anglesey

This 5.5 kilometre circular walk in Anglesey, which is part of the much longer Wales Coast path, offers extraordinary views of the Menai Strait and the whirlpools of The Swellies between Pont Britannia and the Menai Bridge. Start in the Coed Cyrnol carpark (LL59 5EA; Grid ref: SH 554 719) just north of the bridge, walk back to the bridge, then head south on the path along Belgian Promenade, named after the Belgian Refugees who built it after the first World War. Cross the impressive bridge, designed by Thomas Telford, to reach mainland Wales. Head west to the Treborth Botanic Garden with its large areas of woodland, rock gardens, orchard and wildflower meadows that reach down to the shore which, along with its café, make for a good stop to explore. Continue west to Pont Britannia, designed and built by the noted railway engineer Robert Stephenson, back on to Anglesey then leave the A5 to return along the coast path back to Menai Bridge.
