This section of the path, although short, offers a
great variety of walking. Starting from the attractive village of
Moelfre the path follows a low level path to Traeth Bychan. From here on
you are treated to a wonderfully dramatic series of limestone cliffs,
yet you still feel sheltered as a thick hedge bounds much of this
cliff-line. On reaching Benllech the path then continues just above sea
level around the western edge of Red Wharf Bay.
Walk up the hill from Porth Moelfre and just opposite
Ann’s Pantry bear left over a stone stile and continue until the path
bears left down a slope reaching the shore at Porth yr Aber. Continue
along the path passing the farm / camping site until you reach the small
beach of Traeth Bychan.
Cross the sandy beach of Traeth Bychan to join a shingle beach at its
southern end, and continue round the headland (Penrhyn), passing
Borthwen, and a caravan park on your right continuing straight ahead
descend onto rocks along the shore and bear right around the café to the
seafront in Benllech.
At low or mid tide take the beach route round the headland, Trwyn
Dwlban, to Red Wharf Bay. At high tide walk past the Wendon beach café
and up the hill, after a short while turn left up a surfaced track and
follow the well defined path around the back of Benllech beach, weaving
through woodland to approach a Caravan Park.
At a junction in the paths turn right (left leads onto Beach), and you’ll come out at
the Caravan Park.
Continue through the caravan park then cut
through to the beach at Red Wharf Bay keeping the limestone outcrop,
Castell Mawr, to your left.
At the southern end of the village
waterfront is the delightfully situated Ship Inn, perfectly situated for
a meal or a pint with fine views of Red Wharf Bay.
