A truly Coastal Path at last!

Visitors to the Llyn Peninsula will have been aware that the Coastal Path actually deviates from the true coast line in a few locations. This was a particular problem for the section just east of Porth Oer / Whistling Sands, which unfortunately large inland diversion away from a very beautiful stretch of privately owned coast.

However, thank to a lot of hard work on the part of Gwynedd Council, who have negotiated access with the landowners, walkers are now free to enjoy this fantastic stretch of coast. The council agreed to install new fences and path furniture in exchange for access, so the farmers had the benefit of improved stock fences, while walkers get a well marked path in some of the best coastal scenery in the UK.
