About the trail

Anglesey (Ynys Môn) lies off the coast of North Wales, separated from the mainland by the Menai Strait. The Isle of Anglesey Coast Path encircles this enchanting island, taking in sandy beaches, expansive dunes, rocky headlands and towering sea cliffs. The trail visits quaint fishing villages and bustling seaports, as well as numerous reminders of Anglesey's colourful history.

From spring to autumn the island is carpeted with flowers, while the cliffs, offshore islands and surrounding waters are home to a range of wildlife. The island's close proximity to the mainland means the mountains of Snowdonia and the hills of the Llyn Peninsula provide dramatic backdrops along this stretch of the Wales Coast Path.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Your Itinerary

This itinerary lists our preferred overnight stops for this tour. Sometimes there may be a shortage of available accommodation in a preferred location, in which case we will transfer you from the trail to your accommodation and back again at no extra charge. Overnight stops marked with a (T) will always require transfers as standard.

Overnight stops marked with an (L) have very limited accommodation, and therefore more often than not will also require a transfer, particularly on bank holidays and weekends. We will use non-transfer accommodation wherever possible.

The daily mileages quoted are average trail miles only and do not include the distance from the trail to your accommodation. We do not expect you to have to travel more than a mile from the trail to your accommodation in most cases; should your accommodation be further than this, transfers will be provided as standard if practical. A very limited number of stops will require you to travel on foot up to two miles off the trail, however these instances will be clearly communicated to you if applicable.

Further transfers may also be required due to some accommodations having a two-night minimum booking policy, especially at weekends.

Below are the additional costs that may apply depending on your requirements. Dog-friendly tours are subject to a Daily Dog Charge, which will be listed below if applicable. Our standard prices per person are based upon two people sharing a room; if you are on your own, or are part of a group but require a room of your own, then the Solo Traveller or Single Supplements apply respectively:
