Top 7 Spots to Go for a Walk Along the Anglesey Coastal Path

One of the best ways to discover Anglesey is by walking along its distinctive countryside coastline. Many trails pass through the region, including the 125-mile Anglesey Coastal Path. The trail explores every corner of the island, including mountains, historical landmarks, and coastal towns.

So if you’re looking for a fun way to spend a sunny weekend, take a look at the best spots to visit along the trail:

1. The Great Orme

The Great Orme is the number-one attraction on the Anglesey Coast Path, a 423-foot limestone headland that rises from the cliffs overlooking the Irish Sea. This popular destination is home to the Great Orme Tramway, transporting passengers up the hill since 1902. Once at the top, make sure to take the short hike to the summit for dazzling views of the coast and surrounding area.

2. Llanddwyn Island

Located off the western coast of Anglesey, this secluded island is reached when the tide is low—a prime opportunity to explore the area on a walking trail. This small island is home to several rare plants and animals, making it ideal for spending an afternoon.

3. Rhoscolyn

Another great walking trail to spend the afternoon at is Rhoscolyn, a coastal village in the island’s north. The village has a distinctive medieval church with Britain’s most beautiful carved spirals. There’s also a museum with fascinating exhibits on the town’s history, including a display of early 20th-century life.

4. Llanddona

Located along the North Wales Coastal Path, Llanddona is the northern terminus of the Anglesey Coastal Path. The town is home to the ruins of the Carreg Heulfan house and an imposing Victorian lighthouse. You can summit the lighthouse for gorgeous views of the coastline.

5. Britannia Bridge to Menai Bridge

Another great stretch of the Anglesey Coastal Path is the one that runs from Britannia Bridge to Menai Bridge. You can view the spectacular Snowdonia National Park from the trail, which will take you through the region’s rich natural beauty. Start your walk at Beaumaris, where you can tour the fascinating Beaumaris Castle, before continuing along a scenic coastal walk to the historic Menai Bridge.

6. Cemaes Bay

Another stunning stretch of the Anglesey Coastal Path is Cemaes Bay, a better option for walkers who want to avoid narrow coastal paths and prefer more open terrain. The two-mile hiking trail takes you past several striking rock formations along the cliffs.

7. Beaumaris to Penmon Point

Another great stretch of the Anglesey Coastal Path is the one that takes you from Beaumaris to Penmon Point. The route takes you through the lush green hills of the region, passing Port Penmon lighthouse, where you can take a short detour to explore Port Penmon village. You’ll also experience the spectacular Menai Strait and the fine restaurants, pubs, and shops of Beaumaris. Make sure to stop into the Beaumaris Castle on your way out of town.
