    The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path starts on Holy Island, a place of golden coastline, historic buildings, and ancient remains.

    You begin outside the 13th-century St Cybi’s Church and follow the trail around the Port of Holyhead.

    When you reach Penrhos Beach Road, it is worth a detour to see Trefignath Burial Chamber, a Neolithic tomb that was used by humans for 1,500 years.

    The detour, which also passes the Bronze Age monument of Tŷ Mawr Standing Stone, will add nearly three miles (five kilometers) to the overall route.

    You cross Cymyran Strait onto the Anglesey mainland, continue along the coast and then hike inland briefly to cross the Afon Alaw.

    The trail rejoins to coastline and follows it to Church Bay, where this stage finishes. There are a few options for accommodation and food and drink close to the finish.
