Description

Start: The Trearddur Bay Hotel, Trearddur Bay, Isle of Anglesey LL65 2UN Tel: 01407 860 301

(D/A) Walk out past the car park of The Trearddur Bay Hotel to the seafront. Follow either the promenade or the beach to the far side of the bay opposite, and join the road. Turn right when you meet the road and follow it over a low headland and past the Seacroft. Continue down and past a small beach and at the second (Porth Diana), keep left of the wall between road and pavement.

(1) Turn left into a lane (also called Porth Diana) with a footpath sign. At the top of the slope keep right, then turn left onto a footpath before a row of bungalows. Go through a gate into low heathland and follow the left-hand edge past an information panel and through a kissing gate. After another kissing gate leading into a grassy caravan site, bear right at a corner and pick up a path parallel to the wall on your right above a reedy pond; pass to the right of a house.

(2) Cross the road and take the footpath opposite across a garden and driveway then pass between hedges and walls to emerge at the end of a residential driveway. Follow the drive out to the road into Tyn Rhos Camping Site and turn right.

(3) At a triangular junction, walk right of the grassy island then pass between boulders opposite onto low heathland. Cross the heath, with mobile homes to your left, to another service road. Follow the road opposite, descending the valley towards the sea. Bear right at the boatyard, then turn right up a rocky slope following the Coastal Path sign.

(4) Keep left, still following the coast path, at a waymark post marking a junction with another footpath, with views over a rocky inlet and caravan-dotted headland on your left.

(5) At a waymark post, ignore the coast path as it heads inland, instead continuing along a permitted path ahead, which descends round the head of a rocky inlet and then roughly follows a wall to a second rocky beach. Continue along the wall via a rocky scramble to an arch in a stone wall. Beyond this, continue above the foreshore then aim just left of a prominent bungalow to a stepped concrete wall, where an alleyway leads off right to a parking area.

(6) Turn right then left and follow the residential road as it curves right to the public road. Turn left past Porth Diana, keeping left of the concrete wall this time. Follow the road back to the main beach. Return to the Trearddur Bay Hotel via beach or promenade. (D/A)
