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).

Path Walkthrough

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

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.

  • Best Time to Travel

    British weather is notorious for its unpredictability, minimise the risk of walking in prolonged periods of rainfall by travelling no later than October.

    Although you're unlikely to face any severe weather conditions, strong winds coming in off the Irish Sea can make progress difficult while walking the clifftop routes.
