Walk Description



From the car park go onto the beach and walk below the cliffs to a house.
(N.B. If the tide is coming in then ascend the steps and follow the cliff path).
At the house turn left onto the ascending path to the viewpoints.
After about a mile the path turns inland to a road.
Turn right and follow the road to a National Trust farm.
Take the left fork after passing some farm buildings then follow the path, with views of Llansteffan Castle straight ahead.
Go through a few gates, continuing straight on until another gate leads back to the cliff path.
Turn left and descend back to the house by the beach before climbing once more to continue along the cliff path.
Follow this path for a while then take a right fork down some steps to the road
(at high tide take left fork to car park).
Turn right and go onto the beach.
Turn left on the beach to the car park.
