Here at Silver Bay, we think Anglesey is pretty great. We benefit greatly from the picturesque background we are lucky enough to reside in. Wales is one of the best places to be if you are an avid walker. We have hills, scenery, beaches, and the pubs to stop off after a long trek aren’t too bad either.

There are a number of beautiful walks all over the Anglesey coast for all range of walking abilities. Whether you are an experienced walker looking for lengthy and challenging walks, or someone who just enjoys some fresh air, Anglesey has it all. 

Here at Silver Bay, we are endlessly proud of our private beach, which won the Green Coast Award! It’s not only scenic, full of character and relaxation, but it’s a great starting place for a walk. 

Here are a few walks which start at Silver Bay, and end back at Silver Bay. Ready, set, GO!

Silver Bay Beach Loop

This relaxing walk takes you in a loop from the beach, right back to it! The walk is long enough just to get your heart rate up and stretch your legs. This route stretches 3.39km, perfect for the whole family to get those steps in. To The Deckhouse for a refreshment anyone?

Silver Bay – Traeth Borthwen – Silver Bay

What’s better than the beach? TWO beaches! This walk takes you from Silver Bay Beach to Borthwen Beach in no time! The walk is 3.71km long, just slightly longer than the Silver Bay Loop. This walk takes you on a beautiful coastal route, perfect for all the budding photographers. Pack up a picnic and get your trainers on! The best bit? When you’re finished, you end up right back where you started.

Silver Bay – Borthwen Beach – St. Gwenfaen’s Church – Silver Bay

This is for the avid walkers! Following the coastal walk to Borthwen Beach, this walk gives you the choice of carrying on further, or turning back. Choosing to continue on, this stretch is 6.01km. Passing the fabulous Gastro Pub, The White Eagle you can be sure of a refreshment en route! This walk takes you to St. Gwenfaen’s Church where you can appreciate the stunning medieval architecture, built in 650 AD. After this, you follow the route right back to Silver Bay Beach – just in time for tea!

Anglesey is the perfect place for a bike ride and travelling the island on two wheels offers a different perspective compared to walking or driving. The list of cycle routes on Anglesey is a long one and everyone will have their preferred route, but we’ve put together some of our favourite Anglesey cycle routes in case you need some inspiration.

Lôn Lâs Cefni cycle

Lôn Lâs Cefni – 13 miles

Most of this route is traffic-free so perfect for a family ride out and the trail runs both north and south from the town of Llangefni. To the north is a two mile traffic-free trail that starts at the local nature reserve known as The Dingle (Pant y Pandy) and heads through woodland past Cefni Reservoir to a picnic spot. The southern section of the trail is much longer and follows the Afon Cefni across Malltraeth Marsh to Pont Marquis, joining a quiet lane that takes you to the village of Malltraeth. From Maltraeth you then turn south to head towards Newborough Forest, Anglesey’s largest woodland with plenty of tracks for exploring.

You can find the Lôn Lâs Cefni route here on the Visit Anglesey website.

Telor Tour cycle route

Telor Tour – 17 miles

The Telor Tour is a circular route, starting and finishing at Beaumaris with some amazing views of the sea on the way. Take a hilly ride up to Llanddona village then down to the coast for Penmon Priory and out to Black Point, which is the easternmost point of Anglesey. This is a great spot to stop off for some lunch plus you can catch some amazing views of Puffin Island and Trwyn Du Lighthouse. Penmon Priory is usually open and well worth a visit. The 400 year old Dovecote is also worth seeing plus there’s an ancient wishing well in a walled garden.

Take a look at the full Telor Tour route here.

Hebog Tour cycle route

Hebog Tour – 22 miles

The Hebog Tour is a circular route starting and finishing at Benllech. Make your way up to Moelfre, stopping at Din Lligwy on the way. Din Lligwy is an ancient village site near the coast and makes for a striking sight. Past Din Lligwy you will come to Lligwy beach, a lovely wide and sandy beach backed by low sand dunes. After Lligwy beach it’s a steady climb to Mynydd Bodafon, a small collection of peaks including the Arwydd, which is the highest point on the island of Anglesey. The remainder of the route is relatively easy; you can take a shorter route back round to Benllech or take a longer detour down to Llyn Cefni, the second largest manmade lake on Anglesey.

You can find a map of the Hebog Tour route here.

The Copper Trail

The Copper Trail – 33 miles

This route is perfect for those interested in geology as you have the option to take a detour up Parys Mountain and walk around the old copper mines. Starting at Llynnon Mill, near Llanddeusant, head towards Llanerchymedd. Continue to Penysarn; this is where you will pass the disused copper mines of Parys Mountain. Continue to Llaneilian and then on to the town of Amlwch Port, before heading to Llanfechell. The route then takes you to the coast and the Cemlyn Bay Nature Reserve, ideal if you’re a keen birdwatcher. Continue around Mynydd Y Garn, offering great views of Holyhead Bay, then through Llanrhyddlad to the finishing point at Llanddeusant.

Take a look at the Copper Trail Map here.

Tour de Mon Route – 76 miles

If you’re feeling adventurous, how about taking on the Tour de Mon Route? This is the longest route in our list but also offers the opportunity to see all of Anglesey’s spectacular coast including the picturesque cefni reservoir. This route is recommended for experienced riders, it is both challenging and scenic with incredible clifftop views of the Isle of Man on clear days.

You can find out more and view the Tour de Mon route here.

We are thrilled to announce that we are on the list of the cleanest beaches in North Wales.

Clean Beaches in North Wales

New figures revealed earlier this month found that North Wales has some of the cleanest bathing water in Europe. 34 out of a total of 44 beaches in the area have achieved the EU’s highest water standard, ‘excellent’. We’re thrilled to announce Silver Bay beach is on that list.

The remaining spots received either a ‘good’ or ‘sufficient’ rating for water quality. The figures also show that the amount of ‘excellent’ waters across Wales has gone up from 78 to 83 over the past year.

Excellent bathing water quality is one of the key criteria required for a beach to earn the prestigious Blue Flag status; we are proud to have been awarded a Green Coast Award, part of the Blue Flag awards, earlier this year.

Wales Coast Awards

The Blue Flag is part of the Wales Coast Awards, run by Keep Wales Tidy, which honours the region’s best beaches and marinas. This year, we became the first private business to apply for a coast award on behalf of a beach. We are now the proud owners of the Green Coast Award, which is awarded to beaches that don’t have the infrastructure and management of a traditional seaside resort. The Green Coast Award recognises the hidden gems along our coastline and we are thrilled that Silver Bay has earned that accolade.

To be awarded the Blue Flag status a beach must meet a strict set of criteria. This includes cleanliness, safety and facilities. The award also looks at beaches that meet high environmental standards and tough international bathing water quality standards.

The Blue Flag is important as it helps to set the standard high for beaches, marinas and boat tour operators. It also guarantees that you, as a visitor, have arrived at a quality destination.

Our holiday homes are located within walking distance from Silver Bay beach, perfect for a beach day or a leisurely stroll. The beach is also home to our school holiday activities, such as our sandcastle competition and beach mudder (think Tough Mudder but with sand). 

If you’re interested in finding out more about life here at Silver Bay, you can download our brochure for more information.

The Blue Flag Award recognises beaches, marinas and boats for their high environmental and quality standards. The award is internationally recognised and reassures visitors that a beach is safe and clean. There are 7 beaches on Anglesey with a Blue Flag award, keep reading below to see which beaches have been awarded for their excellence. To be awarded the Blue Flag status, beaches, marinas and boats must meet a certain set of criteria, a few examples of criteria include: 

Environmental Education 

A beach map locating different facilities must be on the beach, along with information on the award itself and details of the water quality. Increasing awareness and care for the local environment is an important aspect of the Blue Flag award and therefore at least five activities that promote this must be carried out, preferably during the Blue Flag season. 

Water Quality 

The beach must comply with the water quality sampling, no industrial, waste-water or sewage should affect the beach area. 

Environmental Management  

The beach and surrounding areas must be clean and maintained, waste bins and containers must be available in adequate numbers with facilities for recycling and an adequate number of toilet facilities must be available and kept clean at all times. 

Safety and Services 

First aid equipment must be available on the beach, including lifeguards if appropriate, along with a supply of water and emergency plans to cope with pollution risks. 

Blue Flag Beaches in Anglesey 

Anglesey has an impressive 6 Blue Flag beaches as of 2020, meaning it is home to some of the best quality beaches in the world. Take a look at what beaches have earned this international, prestigious status: 

Llanddona 

Llanddona beach is located on the Eastern side of the Red Wharf Bay Area. It is a great family beach and has an excellent reputation for windsurfing, kite-surfing and sea fishing.
