I like the steep sides. Quiet area? The beach looks good for a nosey about. You've been to some magic places on this trip! thelonious Posted by thelonious

The valley itself has a very nice cafe/visitor centre/Welsh heritage centre, so not that quiet. I have to say I do not recommend walking along the beach, very rough shingle and hard going especially on a hot day - cold drinks in the cafe were very welcome. We climbed from sea level at the beach to the summit of Yr Eifl (564m) which was pretty hard work.

Really enjoyed the Lleyn though, some really beautiful places to visit there.

Magic. There's something special about climbing a hill from sea level I think. Like you see its whole self. thelonious Posted by thelonious
