I know you can park at the end of the road, but I like walking, so parked in Aberffraw. This is only 1. 5 miles but it's a lovely walk with very little traffic. It's very stoney over to the island but easily manageable. It's...More

This place was so hard to find. We spent 30 mins down single track roads only to find it was now gated and couldn’t get to it easily. We turned and gave up as we had already missed dusk..
