About the trail

The Llŷn Coast Path explores one of the most remote and beautiful corners of Wales: the Llŷn Peninsula. It’s an ancient landscape of tiny hedge-lined fields and gnarled oak woodlands, surrounded by a coastline of rugged cliffs, isolated coves and wide, sandy bays.

The path connects the many ancient sites once visited by pilgrims on their way out to Ynys Enlli, or Bardsey Island, at the very tip of the peninsula, including abbey ruins and outstanding churches. This rich history is rivalled only by the trail’s complete tranquillity, as well as breath-taking views from Yr Eifl back along the entirety of the peninsula from coast to coast. A spiritual leg of the Wales Coast Path.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Customer reviews from the Llyn Coast Path

“A superb peninsular walk with a wide variety of stunning scenery, in a quiet area that still feels a bit off the beaten track. Reminded me a lot of Cornwall, but not nearly as "touristy". The route has a lovely mix of cliffs, beaches, hills and marshland. All the accommodation was excellent (as it usually is!). Lots of wildlife, including quite a few seals in the sheltered bays.”
Mr Julyan, UK
“This was a fantastic walk across stunning scenery of long, deserted beaches, interesting little coves, major castles and historic towns. I loved it! Really enjoyed exploring an area I hadn't been to before. Everything worked perfectly and the weather held out as well! It was a great holiday in a fantastic part of the world which is well worth exploring and has not yet become as busy as many other coastal areas such as the SWCP. Booked quite a few so far so will probably book another one... or two maybe next year.”
Mr Madge, UK
“Fabulous trip with excellent scenery, well waymarked.”
Mr Anderson, UK
“It is a beautiful and interesting walk. We have done multiple walks with Contours and have never had a hitch.”
Mrs Sutherland, USA
“In spite of the weather the holiday went well and on the days when the sun shone, it was a joy appreciating the magnificent scenery.”
Mr Whitehorn, UK
“The scenery and the accommodations were first class. No negative comments to raise here.”
Mr Gunn, UK
“Another great hike thanks to Contours Walking Holidays. A very arduous and challenging holiday in a remote section of Wales. Would definitely book another holiday with Contours.”
