Wales Coast Path: Llŷn Peninsula
This Official Guide to the Llŷn Peninsula section (from Bangor to Porthmadog) 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.
