Anglesey Coastal Path Stage 8 Moel y Don to Llyn Rhos Du Details

Following the Menai Straits, this is an easy section with little ascent. The views towards Snowdonia dominate, and the Menai Straits themselves aren’t too bad either!

There is a short section, a few km into the walk that has tidal restrictions. You should follow the inland diversion if that is the case when you walk it (this diversion isn’t significantly longer).

You pass the Anglesey Sea Zoo on the way as well.

There are very few, if any, facilities along this section other than the Sea Zoo itself. Any mentioned below are a little off the path, such as pubs in Dwyran and Newborough.

The Route

View the Anglesey Coastal Path section homepage here Moel y Don to Llyn Rhos Du which has full map and descriptions.

Alternatively, shell some cash for the official guidebook on Amazon, or the patient can wait until we add the directions on Mud and Routes (but don’t hold your breath!)

For the coastal walk you’ll need the OS Explorer maps for Anglesey East and Anglesey West.
