Walking the Anglesey Coastal Path from Moelfre to Red Wharf Bay / Pentraeth


One of the best sections of the Coastal path on Anglesey from the lovely village of Moelfre to Red Wharf Bay and it’s easy to park do using public transport.

Park at Pentreath ( see picture below) and get the bus for Almwch. It takes about 20 minutes before you reach Moelfre where the walk starts.

The path hugs the shoreline offering beautiful views back over Benlech, before crossing the St David’s Catavan Holiday Park and dropping into Red Wharf Bay and the Ship Inn.

The ship in is a great place to stop and have a drink or bite to eat. It’s a lovely setting over the bay.
