Walking on Anglesey
Wander and enjoy...
The Isle of Anglesey's coastal path covers over 125 miles of mainly coastal walks. It links 36 coastal villages and towns and is a fantastic circular route for anyone. There are over 80 churches on Anglesey, half of these are on the coastal path, including the 12th Century St Eilian at Llaneilian and the Church of St Patrick at Llanbadrig to the north of the island. It is worth stepping in to these ancient churches, though worn by wind and weather they bare witness to Anglesey's rich religious heritage.
Put some shoes on and just wander, or
be organised with maps and guides. Th e
choice is yours, the views are spectacular
and the air should be bottled and sold.
1. Newborough/ Llandwyn Island:
This small town is off the A4080, there is a pay car park near the beach which is signposted from the village. The area is protected by Anglesey Coastal
Heritage, so keep to paths in the forest and read signs, wardens do patrol.
From the car park turn either left onto the beach for Aber Menai point and views to Caernarfon or right for
the long beach leading to the island.
There is also endless woodland.
2. Holyhead Mountain: access from near South Stack Lighthouse, passing Ellins Tower. Climb up above both on the worn path for spectacular views
of the lighthouse and further up to see Holyhead and harbour, Lleyn Peninsula, Trearddur Bay and West Anglesey. A bird watchers paradise.
3. Wylfa, Cemlyn & Cemaes Bay: park near the power station and turn either left for Wylfa Head and Cemlyn Bay, walk the coastal path, headland and across the path near the lagoon, or turn right for Cemaes across fields and the coastal path for the
pubs and shops of Cemaes Bay.
4. Traeth Ora: a secluded bay only accessible on foot. Th ere is a car park near Lligwy (off A5025 Moelfre/Amlwch Road) and you can walk from either
Traeth Lligwy or from near the Pilot Boat Inn across fi elds. Sections of coastal path are above secluded and sandy bays and some sections are through bracken. Nearby is Bodafon Mountain (across the main road). It is only 584 feet high but
provides views of the whole island.
