This walk makes up a total distance of around 8 miles, and apart from the occasional trial of walking over soft sand, is not particularly challenging at all. There is a bit of a climb, but nothing that should give you any cause for concern.

Start off in the lovely harbour town of Abersoch. Make sure you spend some time on its fantastic beach before setting off, as well as perhaps treating yourself to an ice cream.

Head to the north, along the golden sands of the Warren, before starting on the only climb of the walk, up to the top of Mynydd Llanbedrog. At the summit, you should see the famous Iron Man sculpture, before descending into the village of Llanbedrog proper.

If you feel like exploring the area before moving on, we would recommend the popular Plas Glyn y Weddw art gallery. Finish up your walk by taking a stroll along another beach, Crugan Beach this time, before reaching the town of Pwllheli, which is the largest here on the peninsula.

In Pwllheli, you will find the much-loved open air market on Wednesdays and Sundays, as well as a whole host of independent shops and boutiques. And if you like to sail, it is home to one of the best marinas in the country.
