Top 10 Walks: Wales Coast Path: North Wales Coast
Circular walks along the Wales Coast Path
by Tony Bowerman
This handy little guide book gives you the ten very best short circular walks along the North Wales Coast section of the Wales Coast Path
The North Wales Coast stretches for some 80 miles/125 kilometres from the Welsh border close to the walled city of Chester, to ancient Bangor on the Menai Strait. It takes in the northern mountains of the Snowdonia National Park, and runs through four Welsh counties: Flintshire, Denbighshire, Conwy and Gwynedd.
For a while, the coast traces the broad, wildlife-rich Dee Estuary before heading past a string of traditional seaside towns, to Llandudno and the dramatic limestone headland of the Great Orme. Beyond Conwy and its medieval castle are heather and gorse-clad Conwy Mountain, Penmaenmawr and its stone circles, and the mighty Aber Falls.
All in all, it’s a delightful coast with some unexpected but unmissable walks.
