Abersoch – Pwllheli

Abersoch is a popular seaside destination with great beaches, internationally recognised sailing waters, pleasant climate and beautiful scenery. so the perfect place to set up base will exploring the surrounding areas. This section of the coastal paths starts from Abersoch and follows the sandy beach “The Warren” to the former Tan y Mynydd quarry before climbing up to heath land on mynydd Tir- y -Cwmwd which will give you amazing views across most of the Llŷn Peninsular and across to Snowdonia. The mountains of Meirionnydd and Ceredigion can be seen to the south and east and on an exceptionally clear day even further to Pembrokeshire and across the Irish Sea to the Wicklow mountains! From Tir-y –Cwmwd the route takes you close to Oriel Glyn y Weddw and then along Llanbedrog beach past Carreg y Defaid and along Traeth Crugan. Here is an opportunity to comb the sands for drift wood and other treasures. You will soon reach Pwllheli and an opportunity to stop at a café and explore Llŷn’s largest town.
