Short Walk

DISTANCE/DURATION: 3.2 miles (5.2 km) 1 hour 45 minutes.
PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Service bus on A487 411, *Puffin Shuttle 400 (*seasonal, hail & ride).
CHARACTER: Cliff edge, rugged coast, fields and livestock.
LOOK OUT FOR: Norman Motte at Pointz Castle and Porthmynawyd beach.

Spectacular cliffs, secluded coves and Norman ruins…

The cliffs are spectacular on this stretch of the coast (250 feet) with great views back to Ramsey Island.

The promontory of Dinas Fawr (with Dinas Fach beyond) is regarded as dangerous – don’t be tempted to go onto the footpath out onto the point.

You may see the odd sea-bird here gulls, sometimes fulmars and cormorants, with the occasional jackdaw and kestrel.

Porthmynawyd is a secluded cove with a small popular beach accessible when the tide is out. The remains of a Norman motte can be seen at Pointz Castle.
