Tudwelliog to Porth Dinllean [6.7 miles]

The Maps


The Route

The Walk
This was to be a much shorter and easier walk than the one we completed on Saturday.

We walked from our holiday location at Porth Dinllaen into Morfa Nefyn and caught the #8 bus to Tudwelliog - we were the only occupants. Once we had arrived at Tudwelliog we set off along the footpath near the bus stop to the coast itself and arrived at the deserted bay of Porth Towyn.

The coastal path here is much flatter and quite easy to walk and we started off with a pleasant breeze cooling us as we went.

We approached the waterfall near Mynachdy and had to negotiate a few stepping stones to keep our feet dry.

We stopped for coffee near Penrhyn Cwmistir having spotted about 6 seals basking on the rocks offshore. Once we settled down it became apparent that there were quite a few more and eventually we counted 16 of them.
Over the cliff then?

As we approached the final climb up onto the golf course in a small bay called Aber Geirch we spotted a handful of flag irises.

We then took the lower path back to Porth Dinllean via the lifeboat station.

6.7 miles of beautiful coastline in stunning weather conditions - great company too - thanks Geri.
