Walk the Wales Coast Path From Caernarfon to Clynnog Details

The Wales Coastal Path from Caernarfon on to Clynnog isn’t the most spectacular, with a far too substantial section following a busy main road. However, there are still plenty of highlights along the way, with the less rugged coastline providing habitat for wetland birds. There’s also Caernarfon Castle, the Menai Straits and Dinas Dinlle as highlights as well as two churches to visit on the way. We highly recommend a detour from Dinas Dinlle to Llandwrog village, as we think this is an omission on the route as well as keeping off the narrow road section as much a possible! There are a couple more diversions you can take as well, but if you want more information, then see our Alternative Wales Coastal Path Caernarfon to Clynnog route.

This section is well signposted, and shouldn’t pose any route finding problems.
