A delay to the final day of our Anglesey trip but its been a busy few weeks. I have a lot more experiences to post/ catch up on!
Day 3 of our trip to Anglesey was to explore another part of the island. We had tackled the rocky coastal walk the day before so now, we headed to more of a beach walk for the day. The sun was shining if not a little breezy!
On our way to the walk, we drove over to South Stack lighthouse to take a look. The actual car park for South Stacks was full so we went back down to an overflow car park. This means a short walk back up to the visitor center to pay for entry. The walk is coastal and afforded some beautiful views of the lighthouse. Having taken it all in and almost being blown of the path, we opted not to go all the way down and enter the lighthouse.
We then headed back over to Rhosneiger to start our walk. Not too far to drive and we took a quick spin around the village which was pretty to see. Due to parking challenges, we did end up parking at the Oyster Catcher. This was a pub previously owned by the Timpson family. Recently taken over I believe…together with the White Eagle mentioned in Day 2 of our Anglesey trip.
The pub is located at the end of a large beautiful sandy beach. Its a nice place to stop for food and drinks. The downstairs ‘pub’ allows dogs as does the upper deck outdoor seating…which comprises of very cute beach huts to sit in. As the weather was so beautiful, we opted to get straight on the walk and treat ourselves to a nice meal and drinks when we got back. Little did we know, by the time we got back a couple of hours later, they had shut the kitchens down as the were ‘overwhelmed’..? Interestingly, the staff complained to us over new management, and we heard similar grumblings the day prior at the White Eagle. Clearly a takeover that wasn’t going too well!
Back to the walk…we approached the beach through some gorgeous sand dunes. Fun for the kids to play on as we made our way through.
We headed left and along the large sandy beach. If this is the main Rhosneiger beach, then its tipped as one of the best sandy beaches in the UK. It certainly looked like it could be.
A walk to the end took around 20-30 minutes…a gentle stroll and the dog playing in the waves. At the end, we headed up onto a coastal path.
Another nice walk that led us around to an ancient burial mound. It looked like some work was taking place but at some point, it has been ‘open’ to visitors. We used this as a turnaround spot to head back to the Oyster Catcher. On top of the mound, looking beyond Rhosneiger beach, there is another smaler cove/ beach. This too looked like it woudl be worth exploring as today the cove was filled with surfers taking advantge of the breezy weather/ waves.
With the disappointment of the closed kitchen at the Oyster Catcher, we ended up eating at the pub close the rental house The Seacroft. A very nice meal and would recommend to others! A great final day in Anglesey and looking forward to revisiting again one day.
