Lleyn Peninsula Walk Day Two: Nefyn Wales Coastal Path Circular

Direct Transport based walk with Andy Buckley.

8.5 mi


Second day of walking on the Lleyn Peninsula. This walk starts from the bay at Nefyn from where we head inland and through the rolling countryside of this part of Wales with the mountains visible. We pass through villages with there chapels and fields heading towards the West Coast of the Lleyn Peninsula where we join the Wales Coast path and head North up to Trwyn Porth Dinllaen, where you can usually see Kestrels hunting on the cliffs while Cormants are standing guard on the rocky islands just off shore and if the tide is out when we are there there is a chance of seeing seals basking on the rocks that become visible when the tide is out.

We then head around the headland pass the new lifeboat station and drop down onto the rocky path into the picturesque and secluded community of Porth Dinllaen with its few houses and pub with white washed walls and beautiful beach. None residents car parking is a good 20 minutes walk away so although on a weekend of good weather there is a lot of people there but not overcrowded. A lovely place to be on a nice sunny day.

From here we have a walk along the beach around the cove of Porth Dinllaen heading back towards Nefyn with one more headland to walk at Penrhyn Nefyn before we are back at our cars.
