On the weekend of the official opening of the all Wales Coast Coastpath 13 members went to Anglesey to help celebrate this achievement.
The group met up lunchtime on Friday at Newborough Forest and walked 7 miles taking in Llwyddyn Island with it’s many interesting features including pilots cottage and lighthouse.
On Saturday, the day of the official opening, the group walked the 12 miles from Port Amlwch to Moelfre. It took us 30 minutes to get past Port Amlwch and its interesting industrial past. Other highlights included spotting seals at lunch, Traeth Dulas, and the sculptures at Moelfre and finally taking our boots of at the end of a long walk.
The final day of our Anglesey weekend saw us walking from Holyhead Marina to Treadur Bay via Holyhead Mountain and South Stack.
On all our walks we came across others enjoying walking the coast path and it showed what a benefit this is for both the people of Wales and for visitors alike. There are still areas where the coast path detours inland and we all hope that in time agreement can be reached to bring the route nearer to the coast.
