Anglesey Coastal Path: Red Wharf Bay to Beaumaris

Porth Penmon Isle of Anglesey

Another glorious day walking the Isle of Anglesey Coastal path today, even if it was overcast for most of the day.   The 22km provides varied landscape and amazing views.  From the sandy Red Wharf Bay, expanses of marsh, farm tracks, coastal paths and isolated coves. The highest point is at Bwrdd Arthur. On our way to Beaumaris we visit Penmon point, the lighthouse (lovely views across to Puffin Island) and further down the track Penmon Priory ruins, the pretty church at Penmon, the Dovecote and Saint Seiriol’s well.

From Trwyn y Penrhyn we were able to keep to the stony shoreline until the coastal path joined the road at Fryars road. Note: Do not attempt to walk along the shore at this point unless you know the tide times. General guidance is that you should not walk along the shore one hour either side of high tide.

A short walk remains to reach a high point that provides a view down to the pretty town and castle of Beaumaris and across the Menai Strait to the mountains.
