Best Coastal Walks in North Wales

Best Coastal Walks in North Wales

by: David Berry
North Wales has some of the most beautiful coastal scenery in Britain, and a fascinating maritime and industrial history. Passing through it is the Wales Coast Path, a continuous footpath around the full coastline of Wales. In North Wales the Coast Path runs along a coastline of great variety, some areas carrying Heritage status, while on Anglesey and the Llyn peninsula much falls within designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The coastal landscape includes sand dunes, cliffs, tidal river estuaries, sand and shingle beaches, sheltered coves and harbours, the stunning limestone headlands of the Great and Little Orme and the foothills of the Carneddau Mountains overlooking the sea.

This book describes 30 of the best coastal walks ranging from a 1.75-mile dune and beach walk to an 8 mile walk along the unspoilt cliffs of northern Llyn. Some of the walks have shorter options and some can be linked to provide longer day walks. Each walk entry begins with a short overview description giving an indication of difficulty and features plus the starting point including grid reference. Detailed route finding instructions follow in numbered paragraphs relating to numbered points on an associated sketch map. There is a summary table of the walks which gives starting place, distance, grade, time, and any links with other walks.
