Walking Routes on Anglesey

Discover walking routes on Anglesey, or Ynys Mon as it’s known in Welsh. Found in the North West of Wales, this is it’s largest island. It is separated from the mainland by a narrow and shallow stretch of tidal water, the Menai Strait, and connected by two bridges, the Menai Suspension Bridge and the Britannia Bridge.

Being an island naturally most of it’s best walks are found on the coast. Boasting 201km of coastline, and covering most of Anglesey’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) you can discover world beating geology, natural beauty and secluded beaches along the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path. Which also makes it a must visit section of the national Wales Coast Path.

That being said don’t feel that’s all Anglesey has to offer walkers, with plenty of woodland, heritage and wildlife it boast a number of circular walks as well as inland walks. And although relatively flat in comparison to  neighbouring Snowdonia it has a few summits to climb too!

Walking highlights in Anglesey include; Holyhead Mountain (or Mynydd y Twr in Welsh), the highest point on this island and makes the view well worth the walk which starts from the lower South Stack (or Ynys Lawd) car park.

Anglesey has many quality beaches to choose from, but the coastal walk from Rhoscolyn toTraeth Llydan (also known as Silver Bay) offers scenery, is a little quieter than other bays on the island and has a pub near the end.

All romantics will need to walk to Ynys Llanddwyn island, which is one of the most beautiful locations in North Wales, and associated with the Welsh patron saint of love – Santes Dwynwen.

All our Anglesey walking routes come with Ordnance Survey mapping and downloadable GPX files for GPS devices. There’s also either a detailed description written by ourselves, or a link to our carefully curated routes on selected partner websites.
