The path connects over 36 coastal villages and passes through scenery of which 95% is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), providing the basis for a superb long distance circular route.
Around 7% of access along the path is provided courtesy of the National Trust. This includes areas such as Carmel Head, in the north-western corner of the island. About 4% of access along the coastal path is provided courtesy of Forestry Commission Wales. This area comprises of Newborough Forest, in the south-eastern corner of the island.
With nowhere on the island rising above 720ft (219m), and with all the towns and villages along the way, the path makes for fairly easy walking well provided for with rest points and connections with public transport services.
The Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path is currently managed by a partnership consisting of the following organisations: Isle of Anglesey County Council, Menter Môn, Countryside Council for Wales, The National Trust, Forestry Commission Wales, Welsh Development Agency and Wales Tourist Board.
