This section of the path probably feels the longest as it involves a significant amount of shoreline walking. You begin at sea level taking in the eastern half of Red Wharf Bay, joining the top of a sea wall for a 500-metre stretch. Climbing up towards Bwrdd Arthur you’ll perhaps wish you were walking in an anti-clockwise direction, but the views through farmland to Penmon Point are an ample reward. The latter half of the walk follows the the shore with fine views of the Carneddau mountains across the Menai Strait. The first section of the walk skirts the edge of Red Wharf Bay, a fabulous bay where the sea appears to go out as far as the horizon. Be adventurous and leave the official route by cutting across the sands - but beware the incoming tide! <br><br> At the east end of the bay, the path passes Llanddona seafront before rising steeply to the site of an ancient hillfort, Bwrdd Arthur, from where the path levels out before descending to Penmon Point and its picturesque Lighthouse. <br><br> From Penmon Point take the tarmac road in a south westerly direction. On reaching Penmon Priory and Dovecote it is well worth a small detour round the back of the Priory to visit the Holy Well of Saint Seiriol in its evocative setting. <br><br> Continue the walk returning to the coast at Porth Penrhyn, before passing Lleiniog and Friar’s Bay and reaching the outskirts of Beaumaris.
