95% of Anglesey’s 125 mile coastal walk is set within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. From Tyddyn Isaf alone there are a multitude of footpaths that can take you in every direction imaginable, so if you’re feeling active why not take a look at some of the walks available to you.
You can choose to explore the coastal footpaths in either direction from Lligwy Beach, spotting the odd porpoise or dolphin as you travel. Alternatively, take a walk inland and ascend Bodafon Mountain. On a clear day you are guaranteed spectacular views across Anglesey to the Snowdonia Mountains or even the Isle of Man.
If you want to travel further than the immediate locality a far more demanding challenge awaits you! 850 miles of coastal foot path were official opened in 2012 – this path navigates around the entire coast of Wales.

This may not sound too challenging, but it may surprise you to realise that if you completed the entire 125 mile route you would have ascended a total of 13,695 feet. The coastal walk is split into 12 convenient sections, that can be completed over 12 days.
