Circumnavigations: Isle of Anglesey

The circumnavigation of Anglesey is a rewarding challenge that benefits from detailed planning. It is viewed as a classic trip and for many is a rite of passage. The wide variety of start locations when combined with the tidal phases gives many different options and opinions of when and where to go from. Good planning is required for a fast lap, but for a more relaxed outlook then 3-4 days is the norm - weather allowing! With impressive scenery, exposed coastline, tide races, wildlife, open crossings, the fast-flowing Menai Straits and of course the tides. This is the ultimate one-day circumnavigation, a sea kayaking challenge that should be on everyone's list.
