Summary: The Llyn Peninsula Coastal Path is a waymarked long-distance footpath running along the coast of the Llyn Peninsula from Caernarfon to Porthmadog in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. The path opened in 2006 as part of the work to complete a walking route around the whole coast of Wales. The Llyn Peninsula Coastal Path is typical of such routes, passing through secluded coves and beaches, along cliff top paths and through small harbour villages and some larger towns. Wildlife is abundant and exciting too with sightings of bottle-nosed dolphins and Atlantic grey seals being usual sights. Some locations on the route are Caernafon Castle, Llanwnda, Groeslon, Penygroes, Nefyn, Aberdaron, Rhiw, Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth), Porth Ceirlad, Abersoch, Cardigan Bay, Pwllheli, Chwilog, Criccieth and Porthmadog.

(Note: The given distance of 96 miles is taken as an average. There are a number of paths off the main route which head closer to the coast line and often around small headlands).
