As we left Rhosneigr our half day walk today (11km) was accompanied by the roaring sounds of fighter jets training at RAF Valley. Despite the noice we enjoyed the spectacle. As the tide was out we started along the beautiful expanses of sandy beaches at Rhosneigr, along Traeth Crigyll and Traeth Cymyran. Note: There is a tidal river at Rhosneigr called the Afon Crigyll. You may be able to paddle across. However, if the tide is in take the path out of the town, along a lane down to the footbridge. From here you can take a path into the sand dunes alongside RAF Valley.
Leaving the beach we walk along dunes, (the maram grass looks beautiful, covered in frost, sparkling in the morning sunlight), hedges and fields and past landing lights for the airfield. Several ladders and styles are negotiated as we cross a number of fields. You will be rewarded with a lovely view of the marshes as you approach Four Mile Bridge. Be warned – this area is very boggy at the moment.
