    This stage explores golden coastline and gives you the chance to see some decorative Neolithic stones.

    At 18.3 miles (29.5 kilometers), this is the longest stage in the itinerary. However, it is level hiking throughout.

    From Aberffraw, you follow the Afon Ffraw to where it joins the sea and continue along the coast to Anglesey Circuit, where you head inland briefly.

    You rejoin the coastline and soon arrive at Cable Bay (Porth Trecastell), a sheltered beach that is backed by sand dunes and surrounded by cliffs.

    Overlooking Cable Bay is Barclodiad y Gawres, a Neolithic burial chamber that is renowned for its decorative stones.

    The trail continues through Rhosneigr, over the Afon Crigyll, and past Anglesey Airport before looping around to Four Mile Bridge and onto Traeth Llydan.

    This stage finishes at Rhoscolyn Beach, which has options for accommodation and food and drink nearby.
