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

Nefyn –( Porth Ysgaden – Porth Colmon) – Porth Oer

Porth Dinllaen, one of the gems of the Llyn coastal path and this picture postcard village is only approachable by foot; across the sands from Morfa Nefyn, or by crossing the golf course on the headland. Any effort exerted, is amply rewarded however, with the magnificent views across the bay towards the Yr Eifl hills and the simple pleasure of just being in this idyllic paradise. Look out for the curious seals coming close to the shore to watch any activity! You then follow the path as it winds in a leisurely way along the coast. This is a land of coves, each one of which has its own unique character, such as Porth Ysgaden and Porth Colmon which are ideal for diving or launching and landing boats. At Porth Widlin you head inland for a while before rejoining the sea at Porth Oer which is a popular beach, backed by steep grassy cliffs. The beach is known as "Whistling Sands" because of the sound that occurs when you shuffle your feet! This does not happen all the time, but is a unique experience when it does! The noise is created by the unique shape of the sand particles and there is only one other such beach in Europe.
