Walking for Softies (based on the East Coast of Anglesey) 4 nights, 3 days walking.
Price: £400 per person(sharing).
Day 1: Arrival by car or train.
Pick up from Bangor station, or if travelling by car, meet and greet at your accommodation on the East coast of Anglesey. We do recommend a car for this package as it will be useful to to travel in the afternoons/evenings after your walk. Also this package is more strenuous than the Walking for Softies (based in the South).
Morning pick up and transfer to Lligwy Beach. Follow the coastline northwards to the golden sands of Traeth yr Ora and onto the Dulas estuary. For an unique experience, stop at the Pilot Boat Inn (an old smithy) at the edge of the Estuary. The bar inside is made from the prow of a wooden boat, and the pub itself is the nearest thing to a quirky museum you will ever find. The coastal path takes you north around the estuary to a wild, unspoilt area, reminiscent of Ireland, eventually leading you to the square, white lighthouse at Point Lynas and the sheltered beach of Llaneilian. Pick up and transfer back to your accommodation. 6.8 miles (moderate)
Morning transfer back to Llaneilian, Lynas. This section is strikingly scenic with an expansive seascape. The coastal path winds along low cliff-tops through attractive coastal heathland which provides a good habitat for the wheatear and stonechat. The offshore islands are home to colonies of seabirds like the chough and a great sea watching spot, with regular sightings of bottlenose dolphins, porpoises and grey seals. The first port of call is Ffynnon Eilian, a small spring which is said to be the holy well of St. Eilian and on a clear day it is possible to see the Isle of Man in the distance. Porth Amlwch Port is an interesting place to visit, with its roots anchored in an industrial past when it served as the world’s largest exporter of copper – which was mined at the nearby Parys Mountain. Visit the Copper Kingdom heritage centre and café before completing the last leg of the walk to Bull Bay.
6 miles (moderate)
Today’s walks takes you along the remotest part of the path. Follow the coast to Porth Wen, a lovely isolated cove and an unlikely site of an abandoned brickwords with its strange tall chimneys and bee-hived shape kilns. You now climb quite high, with stunning views of Middle Mouse Island and if you take a little detour you will reach a summer house at Wales’ most northerly point! Descend to Porth Lleianna and the church of Llanbadrig.(St. Patrick’s), finally arriving at the village of Cemaes. Pick up end of day transfer back to accommodation.
