    This stage takes you to one of the best places in Britain to spot the rare red squirrel.

    From Dwyran, you join the Afon Braint for a short while before entering Newborough Forest, which is home to myriad species of birds, plants, insects, and mammals.

    The woodland is also one of the most important red squirrel conservation sites in the UK, so be sure to keep a look-out for the elusive critters.

    At the western edge of Llanddwyn Beach it is possible to make a loop of Llanddwyn Island, which boasts two picturesque lighthouses, a ruined 16th-century chapel, and is part of the Newborough Warren National Nature Reserve. This detour adds nearly two miles (three kilometers).

    The trail follows the edge of Newborough Forest, emerges from woodland and continues over Malltraeth Sands.

    You then head inland to Llangadwaladr and onto the village of Aberffraw, where this stage finishes.

    There is not much to Aberffraw, but there are limited options for accommodation and food and drink.
