Anglesey

Aberffraw to church of St Cwyfan

Aberffraw coastal path walk to the church of St Cwyfan and return. A really nice little walk taking in part of the Welsh coastal path on Anglesey. Starting in Aberffraw at the free public car park, you leave the car park via the hump backed bridge and then follow the coastal path signs, the walk then follows the coastal path to the church of St Cwyfan. From here the walk comes inland on lanes to complete the horseshoe back to the car park in Aberffraw. Great coastal views off the west coast of Anglesey with Snowdonia in the distance to the south. The walk takes you to the old church of St Cwyfan standing on the walled island of Cribinau, a unique place, well worth the visit.

Newborough Forest

A lovely walk in south west Anglesey, good forest tracks with stunning sea and Snowdonia views near the end, in the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve. At just over 8 miles the walk is easy as fairly flat. Starting at the car park you follow the forest tracks going around the forest in a big horseshoe, near the end you hit the beach and head out onto a peninsula called Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn). Great Snowdonia vistas and a historic site – The church of St. Dwynwen (the Welsh patron saint of lovers), after this you head back to the forest for the last section of the walk.
