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

Pwllheli - ( Pen-ychain ) – Criccieth

At the heart of the Llyn Peninsula, Pwllheli is known for its superb marina and some of the best sailing seas in the UK so why not make a weekend of it and try out your sea legs! From Pwllheli follow the beach to Morfa Abererch and on to Pen- ychain headland and pass the Hafan y Môr holiday centre. The route then takes you inland for a while along the roadside path to Llanystumdwy before again turning to the coast. Take advantage of this detour to visit the grave of one of Wales’s greatest statesmen, David Lloyd George. This section ends in Criccieth, “The Pearl Of Wales On The Shores Of Snowdonia” and owes its existence to Criccieth Castle, established by the Welsh Prince Llywelyn Fawr (Llewelyn the Great) and later enlarged by King Edward the First of England, is a landmark for miles around and dominates the small town – worth popping in on!
