Anglesey Coastal Walk
TOG Tip: This isn’t a circular walk so either phone a friend or hitch a ride back to your car!

The Anglesey walk uncovers the birth place of Land-Rover and ends on the romantic Llanddwyn Island, home of Wales’s own female St Valentine and a lighthouse cove with stunning sea views.

Teetering on the North Wales Coast, Julia traces the coastal waters of the Menai Straits, helping to save lobsters and meeting local mussel and oyster pickers, getting to taste them in a sunset beach picnic at the climax of her walk.

After a paddle in the sea, she discovers why Prince William and Kate have a soft spot for the romantic St Llanddwyn Island, home to the Welsh St Valentine in a setting so spectacular that it reminds Julia of New Zealand’s South Island.
