A circular walk around Llyn Maelog Lake and Traeth Llydan Beach. Mainly flat with some minor rocky outcrops which makes for a pleasant walk of 60/90 minutes. (not suitable for pushchairs). A variety of birds can be seen on the lake therefore binoculars and cameras are recommended. A long stretch of beach provides an ideal opportunity for some beach combing. The paths are well defined and easy to follow. One short area has grazing horses and donkeys with signs warning that dogs must be on leads in this section. The donkeys are friendly with humans but apparently not with dogs.
RAF Valley is just to the west but there is no guarantee that Prince William will be seen on the walk.

Take the A55 across Anglesey and turn left on the A4080 to Rhosneigr. Off road parking is available on the left as you enter Rhosneigr. Note Maelog Lake Hotel on your left just before this parking area.
