The Llyn Coastal Path is 84 miles long. It starts at Caernarfon and takes your right round the coastline of the beautiful Llyn Peninsula ending at Porthmadog. The coastal path has some of the most spectacular views in Wales. Snowdonia meets the Llyn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty meets the Irish Sea!! Spot the bottle nosed dolphins and Atlantic grey seals or do a bit of bird watching! Bring your binoculars – you might see a chough or two!
The majority of the route is public footpaths, quiet country lanes and beaches. Sometimes the path goes inland, on higher ground – there are a few steep climbs.
The coastal path is based on an ancient pilgrimage route to Bardsey Island, a tranquil and peaceful island off the tip of the Peninsula, a place steeped in history and traditions. Why not take a boat trip to Bardsey to end your holiday in style?!
Take a break from walking to sample some of the other sights and attractions of the area,
Caernarfon Castle – architecturally the most magnificent castle in Wales.
Glynllifon – once the large estate and mansion of the Newborough family who made their fortune from slate – now a beautiful country park with woodland paths and café.
