The pub at the porth

TREFOR TO PORTH DIN­L­LAEN, Llyn Penin­sula, Wales

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

This walk be­gins and ends in Ne­fyn, an erst­while her­ring town that once had over 40 her­ring boats. Around here the fish was known as ‘Ne­fyn beef’. With the hill of Garn Bo­d­uan, and the re­mains of 170 Iron Age huts, be­hind you, head in­stead to the more re­cent vin­tage glory of the bright-coloured beach huts along the shore at Porth Ne­fyn. Far from the iden­tikit row of neatly painted huts, these are a lovely mis­match­ing bunch of sheds on stilts, and much more at­trac­tive for it. Head west along the cliffs, then drop down to the sand for the beach walk to Porth Din­l­laen, an early-19th­cen­tury fishing vil­lage with crys­tal-clear wa­ter, dol­phins and seals, and very pleas­antly no road ac­cess. Here you’ll find the most warm-hearted pub, Tŷ Coch Inn – a per­fect spot for a lit­tle quiet con­tem­pla­tion of your own, with a glass of lo­cal Snow­do­nia ale. Look back along the coast at the im­pres­sive 560m Yr Eifl, a rugged triple-peaked moun­tain, that drops in sheer cliffs into the sea. WALK HERE: Turn to Walk 20 in this is­sue.

BEACH OR PUB? TRY BOTH. . . Walk out on a lit­tle penin­sula off the big penin­sula of the Llyn, to a pub on the beach and views to Yr Eifl. Turn over for a coastal walk so new it’s not yet fin­ished...
