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

The graveyard neat in parts and overgrown in others the overgrown areas are so romantic is was such an enjoyable walk that it was... More

Oh wow atomospheric is the word. Go in this church and feel the history. Even the churchyard will give you goosepimples. Take a walk around this little island and along the walkway. Loved it!

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...
