We were taken by friends for a walk round church island and along the Belgian promenade. It's a wonderful setting (the tide was out; I suspect it's even better when it is in). and we had a relaxing afternoon

My wife was at St Gerard's convent as it was and used to visit this church. She took me there and I was enchanted and like to go back at every visit. Beautiful. Visit, but be quiet and savour it. Look at the War memorial too.

Unfortunately, the church was closed for repairs when we visited. Lovely walk through the trees and down to the island. Interesting to see the cemetery and fantastic scenery and all the different birds. Try to visit at High tide if possible as the views are better than at low tide!

I have been fortunate enough to go walking around Church Island on two occasions when the church has been open. It's so peaceful. Well worth the time to go inside.

This is not open all year round and depends on volunteers to keep open. See this little church if you can, it's an amazing little place set on an island in the straits. Incredible outlook and steeped in history. Worth the visit!!!

Really a place where you travel back in time, with the church atmosphere, the cemetery grounds with the druids signs and the round prayer (or perhaps sacrifices) areas. Truly amazing!

It's free it's beautiful out has the most amazing.views. The cemetery is fascinating and on the door to the chapel it states 6AD. They must have been tiny then as you have to stoop to get in( holds about 35 people). Then walk to Menai Bridge town via The Belgian Promenade fascinating

We were advised by a local to visit this beautiful little church, it was a sunny Sunday morning when we visited and it finished our break off perfectly. The history of the church and island just draw you in, walking around the peaceful island watching the birds and enjoying the views of the straits was a joy and then to... More

This little Church or chapel, is just amazing. It is not always open to the public, but I was lucky to be able to go inside a few times, and it is so quaint and atmospheric. It was built over a thousand years ago, with a tiny front door, and aged oak beams, you will love it. The views are... More

A beautiful peaceful walk around the graveyard with great view of Menai straits, then walk down to the straits or walk in the woods, great for all including the dog! All for free! A summer's day take a picnic and sit down on the small beach and enjoy the bird song.. Best of all except for parking it won't cost... More
