Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path: Llyn Peninsula
Circular walks along the Wales Coast Path
by Carl Rogers
This handy little guide book gives you the ten very best short circular walks along the Llŷn peninsula section of the Wales Coast Path
The Llŷn pushes 30 miles into the Irish Sea, tipped by the holy isle of Bardsey, or Ynys Enlli — ‘the island of 20,000 saints’. This remote and unspoilt landscape is characterised by traditional farms and compact villages, punctuated by volcanic hills. Its relative isolation has made it a haven for the Welsh language and culture.
Sea cliffs, offshore rocks and intimate coves dominate the northern coast, while the gentler southern coast promises sandy beaches and holiday towns like Abersoch and Pwllheli. But for sheer beauty, tranquillity and wildlife, the Llŷn is hard to beat.
