A hill-and-coast combo on this North Wales romp. Mynydd Bodafon is a small hill in Anglesey but what it lacks in stature, it makes up for this with its great views. The peaks of Snowdonia are visible on a clear day, and there are views across to the coast to the north. There are no big climbs, but it's a good workout nonetheless. A shorter option is available by missing out the coastal section, but that would be a shame.
