Anglesey is a great place if you enjoy walking.
For the really ambitious, there are 130 miles of path to circumnavigate much of the island’s coastline, within our opinion (and we may be biased!) some of the best views in the UK. The path from Beaumaris towards Penmon is easy to start straight from the door, although there are some sections of road walking, particularly if the tide is in. The route is steeped in history, passing by the now derelict Saunders Roe yard where the Catalina flying boats were built in World War 2, not far from Castell Aberlleiniog, a Norman motte-and-bailey fortification, and later an artillery fort during the civil wars in the 17th Century, past views (at half to low tide) or the wreck of the Hoveringham off the coastline and through remains of the Augustinian priory with dovecote and holy well before reaching Penmon, where there is a cafe and wonderful views of the lighthouse and back towards the Great Orme.
Other local walks include:
- Castell Aberlleiniog woods and around Llandgoed
- Belgium boardwalk and Church Island
- Newborough forest and beach
- Pentraeth Forrest
- Vaynol woods and Treborth botanic garden
