Welcome to Anglesey


Rhosneigr circular walk


Description of a circular walk near Rhosneigr, on the south coast of Anglesey.

Tywyn y Llyn Bridge to footbridge over stream at the furthest point of the lake

Off road parking area to the left immediately past the road bridge on the A4080 when approaching Rhosneigr in a Westerly direction passing Maelog Lake Hotel on your left. The first part of the walk will be a circuit of Llyn Maelog on well defined footpaths. Start your walk at the footpath sign and boardwalk on the roadway from Rhosneigr.

Cross the footbridge and follow the boardwalk path between the metal fence and the reeds on your right. Continue along this path to where the boardwalk ends at the lake side and a small island where you will always see a variety of birds (bring binoculars). Follow the path toward the house with kissing gate and red brick boundary walls on your left. Climb up the steps to the next field and rocky outcrop with sign to indicate the wildlife conservation area.

The path now follows the line of the bracken through the field in the direction of the caravans and through a kissing gate with a sign showing David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award to Tŷ Hen 99 – 06. Follow the way marker on down side of the gate by bearing right along lake side (not over stile towards the caravans), walking between rock outcrops and following yellow marker posts through vegetation on to the field and through another kissing gate with way markers to the next yellow marker post and down to the lake side, passing the rocks on your right and on to the footbridge over the stream at the furthest point of the lake.

Footbridge over stream at the furthest point of the lake to post box

The path now follows the easterly side of the lake. Follow the path at the lake side to the gorse bushes on your left to reach the rock outcrops and bearing left to a kissing gate and path to a timber kissing gate. Follow the lake side to a kissing gate and on to another kissing gate. The path now follows between some small trees and clear grassed areas reaching a gate and kissing gate with way markers at a lane. Turn right at the lane passing entrances on your left to reach the T-junction on the A4080.

Post box to Tywyn y Llyn Bridge

Turn right on to the A4080 over the bridge and cross the road on to the public footpath sign by the post box. Follow this tarmac surfaced lane with passing places, passing the public footpath sign to your left and Penseri Caravan Park and continuing on the lane. Turn right at the way marker just before the houses which overlook the beach. Turn left through the sand dunes on to the beach at the end of the houses and turn right to walk along Traeth Llydan towards Rhosneigr to reach the river running from Llyn Maelog to the sea.

Turn right along the riverbank to cross a footbridge to the picnic area. Follow the path towards the houses and turn right at the wall to return to your starting point.
