Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path: Cardigan Bay North

Circular walks along the Wales Coast Path

by Sioned Bannister

This lovely little book contains the ten best short circular walks along the Snowdonia Coast, which lies at the northern end of Cardigan Bay, and is part of the Wales Coast Path

Cardigan Bay embraces the dramatic sweep of the Welsh coastline, from Bardsey island on the tip of Lleyn, in the north, to Strumble Head in Pembrokeshire, in the south. It takes in parts of two National Parks: Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire, and three different counties, Gwynedd, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire.

The striking northern section between Porthmadog and Borth is as varied as it is beautiful. Characterised by vast beaches and rugged cliffs, the coast offers superb walking with ever-changing views and a wealth of wildlife.
