Official Guide: Wales Coast Path: Llyn Peninsula
Bangor to Porthmadog
by Carl Rogers and Tony Bowerman
One of seven Official Guides to the Wales Coast Path
This Official Guide to the Llŷn Peninsula section of the Wales Coast Path contains everything local and long-distance walkers need.
The Llŷn offers some of the finest coastal walking in North Wales. Its distinctive landscape is characterised by traditional farms, compact villages and volcanic hills encircled by the ever-present sea. Along the way, you’ll pass Iron Age hillforts, pilgrims’ churches, medieval castles, a hidden valley, a pub on the beach, tiny coves, sandy bays and Bardsey island balanced at the tip of this ancient ‘Land’s End of Wales’. Keep an eye out, too, for seabirds, wild goats, choughs, seals, dolphins, wildflowers and butterflies.
The Llŷn coast path really is a walkers’ paradise.
