Getting to sections of the coastal path

Listed below are details of how to get to sections of the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path.

Car

The coastal path is served by around 75 car parks, most of which are managed by the local authority. These are marked on Ordnance Survey maps. There are a number of other privately owned car parks that aren’t generally shown on OS maps. Most rural car parks are free of charge, however some charge during the summer months only.

Train

In addition to the main train station at Holyhead, there are request stop stations at Valley (1 mile / 1.6km from Path), Rhosneigr (1 mile / 1.6km), Ty Croes (2 miles / 3km) Bodorgan (2 miles / 3km) and Llanfairpwll (1 mile / 1.6km). None of these are very far from the coastal path, and can provide an easy means of getting back to your start point if considering a circuit on the south-west coast.

Bicycle

Although relatively little of the coastal path itself is accessible by bicycle, there is plenty of opportunity to combine walks along the path with inland cycling. Cycle racks have recently been installed (2004) at 34 locations adjoining the path.

Bus

Numerous bus services run to all the coastal towns on the island, and regular services run around the north coast of the island on the A5025, and slightly less frequently on the A4080. The only places with infrequent services are the north west and north east corners of the island - Carmel Head and Llaneilian respectively - the east tip - Penmon - and between Aberffraw and Valley in the south-west.

Perhaps one of the easiest - and enjoyable - ways to complete the entire coastal path is by walking it in linear sections, using the bus to get back to your start point. The route maps and description on this website illustrate the entire coastal path in 12 sections. The information below indicates how public transport links into the start/finish points of those 12 sections.

Section 1 - Holyhead to Porth Trwyn (Llanfaethlu)

Section 2 - Porth Trwyn (Llanfaethlu) to Cemaes

Bus service 61 passes between Holyhead and Amlwch every 1-2 hours. Again at Porth Trwyn you’ll need to walk an extra 2km / 1.25 miles to the bus stop in Llanfaethlu,
