Anglesey Coastal Path

Anglesey (Ynys Môn) lies off the coast of North Wales, separated from the mainland by the treacherous waters of the Menai Strait. The island’s finest treasure is it’s coastline, which boasts some of the finest and most varied coastal scenery in the British Isles.

The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path encircles this enchanting island, taking in sweeping sandy beaches, expansive dunes, tidal estuaries, rocky headlands and towering sea cliffs. Along the way it visits quaint fishing villages, explores bustling seaports and passes numerous reminders of Anglesey’s long and colourful history.

Anglesey is also noted for its abundant flora and fauna. From the spring to the autumn the island is carpeted with flowers of every hue, the sea cliffs and offshore islands provide a home for a wide variety of birds, seals are a common sight and dolphins can often be glimpsed from the shore. The island’s close proximity to the mainland of North Wales adds drama to the views from the coast path: from almost any point along the trail the mountains of Snowdonia or the hills of the Lleyn Peninsula provide dramatic backdrops to the views.

Highlights of the trail include the attractive villages of Cemaes, Moelfre and Aberffraw; Amlwch’s lovely old harbour; the spectacular views from Holyhead Mountain which takes in almost the entire island, the mountains of Snowdonia, the hills of the Lleyn Peninsula, the Isle of Man and the mountains of Ireland; Thomas Telford’s graceful Menai Suspension Bridge, the world’s first large iron suspension bridge; South Stack Lighthouse and sea cliffs; Penmon Priory and Dovecote; Barclodiad y Gawres burial chamber, the largest Neolithic tomb in Wales; the Church of St Cadwaladr at Llangadwaladr, a former royal chapel and burial ground; the delightful town of Beaumaris with its wonderful castle, Jacobean courthouse and chilling Victorian gaol.

  • Visiting the many clean and beautiful beaches of the Anglesey coastline.
  • Spotting the rich population of seabirds around Puffin Island.

Cycling on Anglesey

If you enjoy cycling then Anglesey has several circular routes that may appeal to you. Each route allows you to marvel at the fantastic scenery that Anglesey has to offer, whilst providing ample opportunities to spot some of the islands beautiful wildlife.

In recent years Anglesey County Council has spent £2million creating a cycle path that links the two national paths that cross the island. In addition to these paths, Anglesey has four formal cycling routes, each named after a particular bird. The Hebog (Falcon) trail actually circles Tyddyn Isaf so is the most convenient to cycle if you don’t want to drive to your starting point, however, all four of the circular routes are worth exploring. There are also two marked point-to-point rides and an abundance of quiet country lanes so Anglesey is definitely a cyclists dream.

Surf Snowdonia - Conwy Valley

Picture this. A perfect lozenge-shaped fresh-water lagoon, roughly the size of six football pitches, set in the lush, green Conwy Valley in the lee of the Snowdonia mountains. Breathe it in. It’s clean, it’s fresh, it’s wild and it’s beautiful.

Now add something entirely unexpected. A powerful two-metre wave that rises at the centre of the lagoon, peels perfectly for more than 150 metres, and dissipates softly as it hits the shore.

Welcome to the Surf Snowdonia Wavegarden®: a revolutionary world-first inland surf lagoon and the UK’s most compelling outdoor adventure destination for you, your friends and the whole family to enjoy.

But the awe-inspiring Wavegarden isn’t the only reason to come to Surf Snowdonia.

And our 50-metre glass-fronted viewing gallery will let you get right up close to the surf action without even getting wet!
