This section of the path, although short, offers a great variety of walking. Starting from the attractive village of Moelfre the path follows a low level path to Traeth Bychan. From here on you are treated to a wonderfully dramatic series of limestone cliffs, yet you still feel sheltered as a thick hedge bounds much of this cliff-line. On reaching Benllech the path then continues just above sea level around the western edge of Red Wharf Bay. Walk up the hill from Porth Moelfre and just opposite Ann’s Pantry bear left over a stone stile and continue until the path bears left down a slope reaching the shore at Porth yr Aber. Continue along the path passing the farm / camping site until you reach the small beach of Traeth Bychan. <br><br> Cross the sandy beach of Traeth Bychan to join a shingle beach at its southern end, and continue round the headland (Penrhyn), passing Borthwen, and a caravan park on your right continuing straight ahead descend onto rocks along the shore and bear right around the café to the seafront in Benllech.<br><br> At low or mid tide take the beach route round the headland, Trwyn Dwlban, to Red Wharf Bay. At high tide walk past the Wendon beach café and up the hill, after a short while turn left up a surfaced track and follow the well defined path around the back of Benllech beach, weaving through woodland to approach a Caravan Park. <br><br> At a junction in the paths turn right (left leads onto Beach), and you’ll come out at the Caravan Park. <br><br> Continue through the caravan park then cut through to the beach at Red Wharf Bay keeping the limestone outcrop, Castell Mawr, to your left. <br><br> At the southern end of the village waterfront is the delightfully situated Ship Inn, perfectly situated for a meal or a pint with fine views of Red Wharf Bay. <br><br> Continue on the walk, skirting the southern edge of Red Wharf Bay, passing Porth Llongdy before coming to a bridge over the Afon Nodwydd, and the end of this section of the Anglesey coastal path at Red Wharf Bay, or Traeth Goch.
