On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Criccieth – Porthmadog

Bychan, or Black Rock Sands, a popular wide sandy beach with a rocky headland at the western end of the beach and a backdrop of sand dunes that are a site of special scientific interest. When the tide recedes you can explore the rock pools, exposed caverns and multi coloured rock face (the rocks are not black!). Moel y Gest mountain stands as a sentinel as you skirt its base before arriving at the end of your journey at Porthmadog. If you are feeling energetic then do head up Moel y Gest as the views over Porthmadog and Tremadog are splendid! Porthmadog is a bustling town, full of individual shops and places to eat. It has with a strong and proud heritage, culture and community. The Welsh language is a key part of its identity, commonly spoken here and its people are particularly warm and friendly. Perfect end to a day’s walk!
