Beautiful walk from the Britannia bridge to Menai bridge. Part of the Anglesey coastal walks, about 4.3 miles and worth every step. There is a wildlife/bird hide and visit Church Island for terrific views of both bridges. Sensible footwear recommended and check the tide and weather as the walk is close to the straits in places.

A lovely little walk way from everything but just a stones throw from everywhere. You can park in the car park and just a short walk down to the Menai straits where it's nice and flat. The views are amazing and it's so peaceful, there are also other walks when you get down there, you can walk round to the... More

This ancient little church, which is still in use, sits on an island in the Menai Straights and is accessible by a causeway. It has some nice stained glass windows.

Beautiful spot, the church is very atmospheric. Walking around the area at the same time is a must as the church is tiny -eg around the wood, belgian promenade and views of the straits.

it was rather inspiring, and yet calming to sit in the graveyard and contemplate the lives, the world of these people from so long. a little spooky too, as every good grave yard should be.

A beautiful, tranquil spot set in the Menai looking at Brittania Bridge. The church is often locked but if open is a gem. Park by the restaurant next to Waitrose and walk through the woods.

The atmosphere here is quite magic, both on the island and inside the church. The aura hits you, what a lovely place to visit, you just know the inhabitants are so lucky

This little church is only accessible on foot, either from the Belgian Promenade or by a footpath from the car park adjacent to the Waitrose Supermarket. Connected to the mainland by a causeway, the churchyard occupies the whole island with the tiny chapel in the centre. The chapel itself is quiet and serene, and the walk around the island is...

To find church island there a path buy the side of the pub by the waitrose. Firstly you get to see beautiful views of the Menai bridge, take the right turn and walk around the bend and you come to the stunning church island.. As there are many gravestones this place is so atmospheric, and the scenery is mind blowing.... More
