This lovely walk will take you along the North Wales coast, giving you a less often seen view of the beaches of this area of Anglesey.
Start off in the car park – a super convenient starting point – and you can take in the metal sculptures, designed to memorialise the marram grass industry that this area once relied on, back in the Elizabethan era.
Make your way across the sand dunes towards the marshes. Here, you can take in some spectacular views, and meet some Welsh Mountain ponies if you’re lucky.
The salt marshes and flats are a wonderful place to visit if you like unusual varieties of plants or birds – come in summer for the orchids.
Next is Llanddwyn Beach. This beach is fantastic in its own right, miles of golden sand. It also offers great views of the area: you can see Bardsey Island and the Yr Eifl mountains. Keep going and you’ll reach Llanddwyn Island, accessible via a short causeway. Make sure you check the tide times though; you don’t want to get stranded!
Llanddwyn is the island of St Dwynwen, the patron saint of lovers, making this a wonderfully romantic walk. Make sure to pay the lighthouse a visit before turning back, and if the weather is nice you can even see Snowdon from here.
Newborough is located in Angelsey and is known for its walking oppourtunities. Much of the surrounding areas are known as nature reserves for their natural beuaty and wildlife.

Visitors to the Isle of Anglesey will find the lovely town of Beaumaris on the east coast, just across the Menai Strait from Penrhyn on the mainland. The town is famous for its castle, Georgian architecture, sea front and pier. It also has many good restaurants, cafes and arts and crafts shops making it the perfect destination for a quiet and relaxing getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living.
The Isle of Anglesey is a beautiful part of Wales, set apart from the Welsh mainland by the Menai Strait, and it is well worth spending at least a few days on in an effort to see and experience as much of its natural beauty as possible.
Criccieth Castle was constructed on the headland between two beaches, meaning it watches over the town from above like a sentinel. Rather a lot of the original structure is still intact, allowing visitors to see an almost complete picture of what the castle would have looked like all those centuries ago, with their imaginations filling in the gaps.
