Anglesey Coastal Path runs along the 125-mile (200 km) coastline of this North West Wales island, including Holy Island in the West. The £1.4 million coastal path runs virtually within the entire Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Anglesey. It is a network of public rights of way and some designated permissive paths.
The route follows the coast of Anglesey, very nearly making a complete loop. Two exceptions are where the path fails to pass through the Plas Newydd estate, and at Llanfachraeth. Although circular, it formally begins and ends at Holyhead.
The path is well signposted throughout.
European Objective One funds have contributed to this project which aims to meet the growing demand for coastal walking. The path has been created by a partnership led by community agency Menter Mônand the Isle of Anglesey County Council. It was formally opened by Rhodri Morgan AM, First Minister of Wales on 9 June 2006.
