Well worth a visit if you are anywhere near the area. It's peaceful, relaxing and interesting. Visited at high tide, Menai Bridge is a must to see then.

The walk under the Menai Suspension Bridge and along the Belgian Promenade to the church is beautiful. The church is very small and was established in 630 AD. Definitely worth the walk to see the strength of the tides of the Swellies.

We visited not once but twice in a couple of days - only due to the fact it poured with rain the first time, but we were determined to visit this delightful island church. So well kept and plenty of photo opportunities of the two...More
