Walking the Anglesey Coastal Path in Wales from  Four Mile Bridge to Treadaur Bay


Probably one of the best walks on the Anglesey Coastal Path. It is very easy to do as a circular route, starting and ending in Treadaur Bay.

Approach to Silver Bay

If you are intending to start the circular walk then you will need to park at the beach car park at Treadaur Bay, it’s next to the Sea Shanty cafe. Have some loose change for the car park as it’s pay and display. There are toilets also.

Take the path along the B4545 towards Four Mile Bridge, it’s about 40 minute walk or you can catch the bus which is right opposite the car park. When you are approaching Four Mile Bridge look out for the coastal path sign just before the bridge. Just follow the path along the estuary until you reach lovely Silver Bay ( above) where you will find a couple of benches and a cafe (seasonal opening)

Taking the coastal path signs at the end of Silver Bay takes you along some great scenic footpaths but perhaps my favourite beach on the whole walk is is Porth Cae-du. The photo below shows the crystal clear water.

Following the path for about 30 mins brings you the wonderful bay of Borthwen. The beach here is beautiful and ideal for kids, although watch out for jellyfish as there was plenty on our last walk. Walk along the sand if the tide is out rather than the path. It’s well worth it.

When you leave Borthwen you will head uphill towards the lookout that is supported entirely by volunteers. It’s a good 20 mins uphill but when you get to the top the view … well see below.

The coastal path now gently slopes downhill and you now follow some excellent cliff paths to Porth Saint. Look below how clear the water is if you are walking on a calm day.

Look out for the hidden arch as you come towards Treadaur. You will have to look back slightly left or you may miss it ( as we did the first time we did this walk )

We are now on the home straight toward Treadaur Bay with about 45-60mins walk back to the car park. Some great little coves are passed on the way.

The route is well signposted

As you arrive on the outskirts of Treadaur Bay you will follow the road past some lovely houses and a pub if you need a pint. All to soon you arrive back at the car park where it all began.
