Walk Aberdaron to Mynydd Mawr

Right at the tip, almost, of the Llyn Peninsula you’ll find the small village of Aberdaron. It’s well placed to walk to the westernmost point of North Wales, Braich y Pwll, and the lofty viewpoint of Mynydd Mawr directly above.

Highlights of the route are the rocky coastline, views across Swnt Enlli to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey), the beaches and a cool pint of what you fancy at one of the two pubs in the village (or have one in each!)
