The path is 200km (125 miles) long and is part of the National Wales Coast Path. The official start point to the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path walk is at Saint Cybi’s Church, Holyhead on Holy Island.
We offer a variety of start and finish points along the coastal path. We arrange transport to return you to your starting point, which is included in the price. Routes selected are dependent upon, access and/or tidal restrictions, weather conditons and your walking requirements. Some examples of routes along the Anglesey Coastal path are highlighted below:
- Holyhead to Trearddur Leaving the port of Holyhead we walk along the breathtaking coastline of Holyhead Mountain and Gogarth Bay. Passing he famous sights of the signal station known as North Stack (Ynys Arw), the South Stack lighthouse (Ynys Lawd) and Ellin’s Tower. We follow the coastline along ‘The Range’ to Porth Dafarch beach, following the headland to Porth y Post and Porth y Pwll, culminating our walk in Trearddur. Distance 19km (12 miles).
- Trearddur to Four-Mile Bridge Beautiful sandy bays and the magnificent Rhoscolyn Head are the highlights of this section of the path. The walk in contrast finishes along tracks, farm and marshland as we head into Four-Mile Bridge. Distance: 14km (8.5 miles).
- Four-Mile Bridge to Aberffraw A level walk of beaches, sand dunes and estuaries to Rhosneigr. From Rhosneigr we walk along the sands of Traeth Llydan with views across the coast to Caernarfon Bay and the Lleyn Peninsula. Up onto the headland to Porth Trecastell, continuing along until we reach the stunning bay at Aberffraw (Trwyn Du). Distance 22km (13.7 miles).
- Aberffraw to Llyn Rhos-ddu From the sand dunes we move inland across farmland and areas of woodland to Malltraeth. Then the expanse of Newborough Forest and the National Nature Reserve. Walking out onto the beach (tide dependent) we can cross to the beautiful and atmospheric Ynys LLanddwyn (this is our local walk as we live near here). The views across to Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsular are spectacular. Our walk finishes at the car park at Llyn Rhos-ddu. Distance 21 km (13 miles).
- Llyn Rhos-ddu to Moel-y-don We follow the banks of the Menai Strait on mainly flat terrain. Lanes, fields and embankments dominate this section of the walk with beautiful views over the Menai Strait to Caernarfon and the mountains of the Snowdonia. There is a break in the coastal path here at Moel-y-don as there is no public right of way along the Menai Strait from this point. The coastal path starts again at Llanfairpwll. Distance 12km (7.5 miles).
- Pentraeth to Moelfre and onto Dulas Bay Sand and salt marshes take us to the shores of Red Wharf Bay. We continue onto the cliff path to the pretty resort of Benllech, along the waterfront then up onto the sea cliffs. Penrhyn provides a beautiful view of Traeth Bychan and Moelfre ahead of us. We continue around the headland and down to the beautiful sandy beach of Lligwy Bay, the secluded Traeth yr Ora and complete our walk in Dulas Bay. Distance 17km (10.5 miles).
