The Anglesey Coastal Path Walk

On an island steeped in Welsh heritage, taking in the landscape a step at a time with walking holidays in Anglesey is the best way to experience the regions singular and diverse landscape. This is very much the heartland of the Welsh language (often considered Europe’s oldest living language), and on the island you'll find Welsh in wide, everyday use.

A collage of pinks, lavender and blues of coastal flowers are typical of spring in Anglesey, with bright yellow gorse offset against the deepest blues of the Irish Sea. The wild and undisturbed natural landscape is a fantastic home for porpoises and seals, and further out towards the horizon, you can spot Gannets diving into the waves.

Walking the Anglesey Coast Path

The southern coast is made up of limestone escarpments, rolling woodlands, sand dunes, little coves and the mysterious lovers’ island – Llanddwyn. From the island’s many traeths (beaches) you have stunning views over to Snowdonia and the Llyn Peninsula.

The northern side of the Anglesey Coast Path perfectly illustrates the diverse landscape of the island. The expansive sea cliffs of North and South Stack extend their reach from the coast to the famous lighthouse, tucked into the rocks. In clear conditions you can spot The Wicklow Mountains, across the Irish Sea. Today, it is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Before you leave, don't miss your chance to tackle more syllables than most can manage, by visiting the famous train station.

Map of our Anglesey Coast Path walking route
Our Anglesey Coast Path walking route takes you around the whole island starting from Holyhead.

Path Walkthrough

Walkers can expect a mixture of terrain underfoot, from sand, heather, pebble shores, forest track and country lanes as the route briefly turns inland. Clifftop walks, long strolls beside rugged beaches, with the coasts rocky outcrops and shingle paths carved out from the wild surge of the neighbouring Atlantic. You'll even encounter stepping stones as you make progress along one of the routes flatter sections - walking along the shores of the Menai Straits.

The walk itself is well-signposted, with the distinctive blue tern way-markers guiding the way throughout the coast. Although a lot of the route is fairly manageable, the sections along the cliffs is where walkers will meet the greatest elevations en-route, particularly the section from Holyhead to Trearddur, with elevations of over 600m.

    - July 2019
    What isn't to like about Celtic Trails? We have only ever used them for a service like this. The coastal rural scenery on this route appealed and proved to be vast and spectacular,
    - July 2019
    Celtic Trails provided an excellent service;l they have never let us down.
    - June 2019
    I really enjoyed my walk with Celtic Trails. Their staff is extremely helpful and responded thoroughly to all my questions, such that as a solo traveller, I felt comfortable doing the walk on my own. All the lodging was comfortable and run by friendly, attentive and helpful owners. The transfers went seamlessly and that walking was awesome.
    - June 2019
    Excellent.
    - May 2019
    Heart stopping views. Friendly people. The path is so well defined, hardly need maps, except for personal interest. Met very few other walkers. Saw seals and dolphins.
    - May 2019
    We experiences a well-organised walking holiday, with lovely and diverse scenery. The whole experience was very relaxing. It did me the world of good. We were in need of fresh air, exercise and some peace, all of which we got. We live in Switzerland and enjoy beautiful scenery at home. However, we do not have a shore line and the scenery we enjoyed on the walking holiday made a very pleasant change.
    - May 2019
    I have walked with you before, having heard about you from my neighbour. You met my expectations again. What I most enjoyed about this walk was the scenery and meeting new people.
    - December 2018
    You gave me what I wanted at short notice and fitted my dates.

    Dear Nathan & Jo, Thank you so much for co-ordinating our lovely trek from Beaumaris to Cemaes Bay. We are very thankful for the beautiful scenery and people we met along the way. The mapping and trail markings were excellent, we stayed in quality accommodations, the roman ruins in Moelfre were both historical and unique and we met some of the friendliest hosts. Thanks again; we look forward to the prospect of a future booking with you. Cheers.
    - June 2018
    We most enjoyed being able to switch off - there was nothing for us to do but enjoy the walk. We had no worries about arrangements, simply the pleasure of the walk.
