5 Dog-Friendly Activities in Anglesey
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is a long-distance path that covers many attractions. It is 100 miles in length and would take 12 days for the average walker to complete. However, this a very user-friendly route and can be travelled by car or using public transport. The path is still under development, so it's worth checking on new attractions before visiting the area. Anglesey has the distinction of not having a single place that has an outright ban on dogs on its beaches!
1. Holyhead Mountain
The Coastal Path starts at Holyhead. It is worth taking time to climb Holyhead Mountain. It is only 220 meters high but is still the highest point on the island with a spectacular view. The mountain provides a very popular climb for travellers and their dogs.
2. Cemaes Beach
Traeth Bach (small beach) is near the small harbour in Camaes and is the smaller of the two local beaches. Dogs are not allowed on the main beach. This is a sheltered, sandy beach, with plenty of rock pools and room to run. It is perfect for families and their dogs.
3. Kinmel Arms, Moelfre
This pub has indoor and outdoor seating and offers a magnificent view of the Northern Wales coastline and mountains. Dogs are most welcome, outside and inside. There are many such establishments along the Coastal Path.
Beaumaris is a small village community, with a population of about 2,000, located at the eastern entrance to the Menai Strait. The village has a substantial accommodation offering, from the local hotel to small cottages. Almost all accommodation is pet-friendly. It is worth exploring this small hamlet, to see the Beaumaris Castle and the bridge and pier alongside the straits. Dogs are welcome to explore with their owners.
5. Four Mile Bridge
The unique village of Four Mile Bridge stretches from Anglesey to Holy Island, across the Cymyran Strait. There is not much activity in the village, but it is worth taking a breath here simply to inhale the antiquity of the community. It is said that a bridge was in place between the two islands as far back as 1530. Also, this stop is just 3 miles from Holyhead and the end of the Coastal Path. A moment of appreciation for this dog-friendly route would not go amiss!
