Beaumaris to Menai Bridge – Wales Coast Path

We are on the Isle of Anglesey at last. Some 131 miles to go before completing the Wales Coast Path.

We have decided that we want to complete the Wales Coast Path, so a short walk to Menai Bridge is planned, followed by Sunday Lunch, Louise is heading home, and Lucy and I will have a leisurely afternoon.

Turning right, away from the promenade , it’s a bit of a hill start to the walk,passing Baron Hill Golf Course.

Much of this walk is along minor road, but there is a very boggy muddy patch To get through before we reach an easy stretch through the village of Llandegfan. Eventually reaching Cadnant Road, follow onto to St George’s Pier passing the Liverpool Arms on the left.

We pass Porth y Wrach (Witches Port) and wonder what the story is behind the name.

We eventually reach and cross the Menai Suspension Bridge, a Thomas Telford design opened in 1826. We head for the Antelope pub for a drink and to pick up the car. The pub has guitar lesson sessions on a Sunday, and a number of locals of differing age groups are arriving for the session.

We pick up the car and drive back to Beaumaris for a very pleasant afternoon. Sunday lunch at The Bull and shopping. I love places where there are more independent shops than large stores!
