Owner description: Walk this stunning part of the Welsh Coastal path from the Castle in Caernarfon in the NE along the pilgrim's route to the beautiful church at Clynnog Fawr, and on to Trefor and the Iron Age hill fort of Tre'r Ceiri. Walk the sandy beaches of Nefyn, Morfa Nefyn and Porth Dinllaen, and Porth Penllech and Porth Oer/Whistling Sands as you head to Uwch Y Mynydd - the Lands End of the Llyn and overlook the tranquil island of Ynnis Enlli/Bardsey island. Stay a while and explore more and continue your walk allong the southern coast to Abersoch, Llanbedrog, Pwllheli, Cricieth and Black Rock Sands and Porthmadog. If you're interested you can stay with us a few days at our B&B and we will happily provide the daily shuttle service to and from any point on the walk from Clynnog Fawr to Pwllheli. That takes all the hassle out of organising your walk and you will stay in some luxury with us. You will not be disappointed check out our reviews on Trip Advisor.

Entering our third week of stunning hot weather, yesterday we walked the coastal footpath from near thePorth Tocyn hotel walking towards Cilan. Stunning views over to the Tuds Island with the memorable experience of a Dolphin shadowing our journey in the sea down below. The dolphin was alongside us for at least 10 minutes before turning around seemingly to retrace its journey. Magical but not unusual for this stretch of water. The path is well signed and and can be a beautiful circular loop if you wish.

Walking along Abererch sands Pwllheli last Monday morning - what a stunning experience with views across Cardigan Bay to Snowdonia and Cader Idris that are unbeatable anywhere in the world. The Coast Path is a natural teasure and Llyn is the crowning glory - walk it whenever you can.

Fabulous weather added to the fantastic experience and amazing scenery - cant praise the coastal path around the Llyn enough. Wonderful views and good paths, though you do have to keep a map with you for some of the areas. If you look at the various routes you can decide on which part of the walk to go on depending on your time available. Make sure you take a taxi number with you if you are leaving your car at one point and finishing at another, there are lots of taxis that will collect you. We often walk from the Southern end of Abersoch beach around the headland to Porth Ceiriad, and then around Cilan to Hells mouth, and have seen dolphins playing around the coastline more times than I can count!

beautiful scenery on very good and well marked paths, make sure you have an OS map though. Linear walks can be completed by the local bus service!

Over 9 days I walked from Caernarfon to Pwllheli on or as near the coast as possible (I had to adapt the Llyn Coastal Path because sometimes it unnecessarily heads inland). A wonderful walk. Highlights were the view from the top of Yr Eifl (worth the effort on a clear day), the walk around Llyn's 'Land's End' (much better experience than all the rubbish at Cornwall's Land's End) and walking along the cliff top paths, alive with bluebells, primroses, spring squill and thrift. And plenty of sheep to talk to, as there were very few other humans. Bliss!
