We went here hoping to have a look in the mud flats around the Menai Bridge, and were pleasantly surprised! Lovely little church and peaceful surroundings! Saw a red squirrel! Worth visiting the war monument next to the church! Also look out for samphire at low tide, plenty surrounding the island, and great to forage for!

Well worth taking the time to visit this hidden gem. A short walk from Menai Bridge and the views are spectacular. The Belgian promenade you have to use to get there dates back to just after the 1st World War.

We came across this tiny 7th century church while on a walk from Menai Bridge. It's on a small island with fabulous views of both the Menai and Britannia Bridges. It's obviously still in use as it was very clean and looked well-loved. Worth a visit.

Passed this church whilst walking along the Belgian promenade between the 2 Menai bridges. It is on a small island which can be accessed via a causeway. There's a small church surrounded by old graves with an imposing Yew tree as you approach. Pleasant walkway around the the island (5 mins walk) with great views of the bridge & North... More

Well worth a visit. This was the original church on the island before the present St.Mary's Church was built.

A favourite place to sit and admire the views, go inside this tiny Church and admire its history; I think it dates back to around 1500. Church Island is a special place that I will always return to when visiting Ynys Mon...

A lovely walk along the Belgian promenade and over the causeway to this beautiful little island with a church (and graveyard) plus stunning views from the war memorial on the hill - well worth a visit if in the area.

St Tysilio's Church is a beautiful hidden spot right by Menai Bridge. When you cross over the bridge onto Angelesy there is a small pay and display car park. There is a path which takes you down to the straights through a wooded garden and across a causeway to the island. The church is very picturesque with the Menai Straits... More
