Anglesey Coastal Path- Trearddur to Holyhead on Trearddur travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Walks in Wales and England >  Anglesey Coastal Path- Trearddur to Holyhead
You’ll incur the greatest height gain, as well as visit the island’s highest point on this last section of the path. Once past the sandy bays of Trearddur, Porth y Post and Porth Dafarch you’ll reach heather clad coastline met by towering cliffs as you journey on towards Holyhead Mountain. The mountain itself gives stunning views in all directions, allowing you to take in just how far you’ve walked, before heading down to the finish point at the Port in Holyhead.
Having left Trearddur behind it doesn’t take long before reaching the small bay of Porth Dafarch, recently the location for a diving expedition to uncover sunken treasure, 2011.

Porth Ruffydd lies another mile or so along the cliff tops, and it is a similar distance to the delightfully named bay of Abraham’s Bosom.

Continue to South Stack, with the picturesque lighthouse of the same name, and the highlight of this section of the Anglesey Coastal Path. Bird watchers will particularly appreciate the views from the path of the thousands of seabirds clinging to the cliff face.

While history buffs will appreciate a short detour to the Ty Mawr Huts, also known as the Cytau'r Gwyddelod, or Irish Huts. The stone remains are estimated to be settlements of the Iron Age and later and they consist of 10 large, round stone huts scattered along the hillside and interspersed with smaller rectangular buildings which are partly below ground.

From South Stack the path heads north to North Stack then skirts the northern slopes of Holyhead Mountain before dropping down to Holyhead Breakwater Park.

From the park it is just a short distance to the breakwater itself, which protects the Holyhead Marina and promenade.

Should you have both time and the inclination there is a small Marine Museum alongside the promenade and a pleasant café / bistro for refreshments next door.

A walk around the headland in the direction of the harbour leads to the end of this section of the Anglesey Coastal Path outside the old Church of St Cybi.
