Llyn Coastal path
Since our self-catering farmhouse and barn conversion here at Cae Garw lies in the heart of a peninsula that is only 5 miles wide - we are in an idyllic location for exploring the Llyn Coastal path ( part of the Welsh Coast Path ).
Out of the main holiday seasons - you can have some of the most popular beaches of the Lleyn all to yourselves - in a peninsula that is rich in flora and fauna. With nearly 20 beaches easily reached from Cae Garw within less than 20 mins drive - you can visit a new beach every day of your holiday!
Opened in 2006 , the route of 84 miles extends from Caernarfon in the North of the Llyn Peninsula, to Porthmadog in the south.
The route is mainly coastal, varying from small coves to a wide expanses of sand and the edge of rugged cliffs- following public footpaths and beaches, but some higher ground paths along heathland moors gives way to stunning views across the whole of the Lleyn Peninsula, towards Ireland and Cardigan Bay.
Visit the famous Ty Coch pub on Porthdinllaen beach, where bottle nosed dolphins and atlantic grey seals are regular sightings from this headland. Hear the squeaking sand particles on Porthor - or Whistling sands beach - and walk the ancient celtic trails in the footpath of the Pilgrims as they made their route towards Bardsey Island, crossing from the small cove of Porth Meudwy near Aberdaron.
The Llyn Cosatal Bus is a great way to transport you to or form your destination - and is available on named days between March and October.
