The Wales Coast Path includes the Isle of Anglesey and the Isle itself creates a circular walk of 125 miles / 200km with an average number of days to complete of 12. The path is aimed at walkers however cyclists and horse riders can also enjoy certain sections.
St Cybi’s Church, Holyhead is the official start point of the path, and the route can be followed with both the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path markers and the Wales Coast Path markers.
You don’t have to complete the whole route but you can just pick some nice smaller walks. We have listed some as examples that you could try:
Aberffraw village, estuary, beach and dunes Circular 2.5 miles / 3.75 km
A short walk which takes in the village of Aberffraw, the pretty Ffraw estuary and the beach before returning via the dunes.
Holyhead to South Stack 2.75 miles / 4.25 km
A moderately challenging walk starting in the Breakwater Country Park in Holyhead. The route heads over the mountain and Coast Path to the iconic South Stack. It is possible to return via well-defined paths around the other side of the mountain and back to the park.
Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch to Menai Bridge 3 miles / 5 km
Use this lovely walk with great views across to the mainland as an opportunity to learn how to say the name of this world-famous village! The walk passes under both bridges to the island – Stephenson’s 1850 Brittania Bridge and Telford’s 1826 Menai Suspension Bridge.
Beaumaris to Penmon Point 4.5 miles / 7.25 km
Enjoy a wander around Beaumaris with its rich Georgian architecture and castle before heading along the coast where you’ll enjoy superb views of the Carneddau Mountains across the Menai Strait. At Penmon Point you’ll see Puffin Island, a protected habitat because of its large cormorant population (but no puffins!)
Moelfre to Dulas 4.5 miles / 7.25 km
This walk, with fantastic coastal views throughout, runs from the picture-postcard village of Moelfre to the popular beach of Traeth Lligwy and the little visited beach of Traeth yr Ora, before heading inland along the Dulas estuary to the Pilot Boat pub. The Path passes by the memorial to those lost in the 1859 Royal Charter and 1959 Hindlea shipwreck disasters.
Amlwch Port to Cemaes 8.25 miles / 13.25 km
From the historic and picturesque Amlwch Port the path leads to low rocky cliffs and the spectacular bays of Porth Llechog (Bull Bay) and Porthwen before passing the remote Llanbadrig church and entering the coastal village of Cemaes.
