Walk the Anglesey Coast Path

The Anglesey coast path is a 200-kilometre path through some of the best coastal scenery in Wales passes through wide sandy bays and estuaries, hidden coves, dramatic cliffs, sand dunes, salt marsh, mudflats and forests, and also gives access to the many smaller islands off Anglesey’s coast. The official start point is St Cybi’s Church, Holy Island, from where it heads along the harbour front then uphill to enjoy the incredible views from the summit of Holyhead Mountain before descending to view the precariously located lighthouse on the tiny island of South Stack. Before leaving Holy Island, the path passes the sea arches at Bwa Gwyn and St Gwenfaen’s Well near Rhoscolyn then heads inland to Four Mile Bridge to cross to Anglesey’s south-west coast. Highlights here include the beaches of Rhosneigr, with Ynys Groes (Cross Island), a low-tide, grassy islet about three hundred metres from the village, and Ynys Feirig, three small inter-connected tidal rocky islets with an important tern colony. Other points of intrest include the large estuary and village of Aberffraw and the dunes and forest of Newborough Warren before the route heads north-east up the Menai Strait. North of Menai Bridge, Beaumaris is the gateway to the remote coastline leading to Penmon Point and beyond to the fantastic sands of Red Wharf Bay. Continuing towards the north coast, between the fishing village of Moelfre and the old copper port of Amlwch there is plenty of natural beauty in the wild sandflats of Traeth Dulas. The north coast highlights include the ternary of Cemlyn Nature Reserve, Porth Wen Brickworks, the wilds of Carmel Head and the islet of Ynys y Fydlyn before returning to Holy Island.
