Today we headed south along the coast from Moelfre. Our first stop was Red Warf Bay, a huge bay with a large expanse of sand which at high tide gets totally covered. It was difficult to imagine that in the late 19th century this was a busy port with large sailing ships that ferried coal, minerals, limestone and lime from the many local lime kilns as well as carrying passengers.

From there we headed further down the coast to the most eastern point of Anglesey and had a picnic on the shingle beach overlooking Puffin Island. Although no puffins we did spot two dolphins.

Leaving the point we stopped and explored the ruins of Penmon Priory which had an amazing and distinctive dovecote. From this coastline there were also great views across the Menai straits to the mountains of Snowdonia National Park

Our final stop of the day was the town of Beaumaris with its relative small but charming castle. The rest of the town was not much but it did have great views across the straits.
