Moelfre to the Lligwy Beach return or in reverse, your choice! Total distance: 2 miles.
Circular walk: carry on into the centre of Lligwy and walk back to Moelfre: another 2 miles.
Helpful tip: there are public lavatories in Moelfre town centre and at Lligwy Beach Café carpark Lligwy or Llugwy – they are both the same place.
One of our favourite walks starts at Moelfre. We park the car in the free car park in the middle of town, and stroll down to Ann’s Pantry ready for a hearty breakfast and a strong cup of coffee to tide us through to a late lunch (www.annspantry.co.uk ). It may be that you choose to start early, complete the circular walk and have a late lunch here, either option is highly recommended. Sadly our cottage isn’t dog friendly, but we do keep an eye on dog friendly places as we are lucky to have a Jack Russell called Diggle in our lives. He loves Ann’s Pantry – dog biscuits and his very own water bowl, he can’t ask for more in life. Diggle Approved.
Once energy levels are reassuringly high begin our walk along the beautiful Anglesey Coastal Path. We leave a whole day for this walk if we are exploring with friends as there is much to stop for along the way.
Starting in Moelfre
This is a very easy part of the Anglesey Coastal Path, a great introduction to those who may be reluctant walkers. Click here for the ROUTE MAP.
Our first quick stop is the beach in Moelfre itself, a photographer’s dream with lobster pots and painted boats to capture.
RNLI Moelfre Lifeboat Station and Seawatch Centre
Keeping to the coastal seafaring theme, our next stop is well worth nipping off the path for. A large statue of Coxswain Dic Evans, awarded two RNLI gold medals for bravery, stands proudly outside the RNLI Seawatch Centre. It is easy to lose yourself for quite a long time here, the maritime history of our Island coming to life thanks to a thoughtfully curated exhibition.
Further along from the Seawatch Centre stands the Moelfre RNLI Lifeboat Station. Housing two lifeboats – an offshore Tamar (Kiwi) designed to be launched from their slipway, and an inshore D class (Enfys) for inshore rescues – it is more than worth climbing the steps to view their lifeboats and chat to the volunteers. During the Summer months behind the scenes tours are given, a must for those with even a glimmer of interest in our seafaring world.
