Cwyfan – The Church in the Sea

Cycling to the sea, Anglesey

🚴‍♀️ 22 miles / 35 km
🌄 685′ / 208 m
🥪 Bring a packed lunch, café on route back


So much more than its destination, on this tour we cross wetlands, the route of an old track across dunes and a pack-horse bridge, and take country lanes to cycle to the sea. We cycle to a stunning, much photographed Church which sits surrounded by the sea at high tide. We break from cycling for a picnic (bring your own) and to walk to the island at low tide.

Once part of the mainland, this loved destination of landscape photographers is still occasionally used for weddings, and makes for a dramatic seascape.

The church has had a chequered past, and has been larger than the present building. Wrecked by storms, it has been also been saved from the sea more than once.

To journey to the coast, we cross one of Wales’ largest lowland wetlands, a vital resource for rare mammals, plants and birds. We then follow an ancient track across the dunes and cycle through Aberffraw, the site of one of the most important Court of the Welsh Princes.

Come with us to explore the coast and Church before heading inland for a different return journey, calling at a wonderful café providing home-made food, popular with cyclists!

22 miles including a short portion of pushing our bikes along a footpath and a walk along the beach.
