    This hike explores pretty lighthouses, historic churches, and picturesque coastline.

    With nearly 18 miles (30 kilometers) of distance and 1,125 feet (343 meters) of ascent and descent, this stage is the most challenging in the itinerary and will really test your mettle.

    From Bull Bay, the trail follows the coastline past Pwll y Tarw and through the town of Amlwch.

    At Llaneilian, it is worth a short diversion to see Saint Eilian's, a well-preserved medieval church with some interesting wall paintings.

    Another brief detour follows to see Point Lynas Lighthouse, which was built in 1835. From the spot, you are afforded lovely views out to the Irish Sea.

    The trail continues past Freshwater Bay, Porthygwichiaid, and Porth Helygen. At Porth yr Aber, you head inland, climb past Llyn Dulas and then descend to the Afon Goch.

    You then hike around Traeth Dulas and rejoin the coastline at Traeth yr Ora beach. A short while later you reach Lligwy Beach a wide and golden expanse of sand backed by wild dunes.

    It is relatively flat hiking for the rest of the hike to Benllech, where this stage finishes. Benllech has a good range of accommodation, places to eat and drink, as well as shops and other attractions.
