Experience all Anglesey has to offer from beautiful Rhosneigr
Rhoscolyn Headland Walk
Taking in Traeth Borthwen, the rugged cliffs, St Gwenfaen’s Well, open fields, woodlands and more, the five mile headland circular walk should tick all the boxes. While some of the circular walks are suitable for bicycles and buggies – there are several styles and gates on this walk that could make it a little tricky for either. As such, we’d recommend this be attempted on foot only.
One of the routes you can take on this walk has been outlined in the linked PDF below, put together by Visit Anglesey. The walk conveniently begins and ends in Maes Parcio Traeth Borth Wen and takes in sections of coast, field and woodland. The guide provides written instructions, and a map to take you on this circular walk – but keep an eye out for St Gwenfaen’s Well, it’s easy to miss and an excellent example of an early medieval holy well (a gift of two white quartz pebbles, tradition dictates, can cure mental health problems).
Where is it?
You can begin at any point on the route, but we’ve set our start point in accordance with the walk detailed in the Visit Anglesey PDF – and that’s Maes Parcio Traeth Borth Wen. To reach the car park, you can take the A5 to Valley, then Station Road to the B4545 and cross into Four Mile Bridge where you’ll take a right on to Maes Llety and follow the road until you reach St Gwenfaen’s Hall where the next left will lead you to the car park.
It can be a tricky drive with several unnamed roads, so it’s best to make sure you have your sat nav on and the location plotted in advance.
From the car park, however, things are a little easier – and you can find the coastal footpath well signposted – though we’d still recommend downloading the PDF unless you know the area well as you can make a comfortable 5 mile walk a lot longer if you take a wrong turn.
