Coastal Walks around Porthmadog

There are many walks in and around Porthmadog , many with wonderful picturesque views, so if you are going to Escape the Crowds and visit Wales and enjoy some stunning views, then here's a few local walks you may enjoy.

 Porthmadog to Borth y Gest

One of the best coastal walks Nr Porthmadog is starting in Porthmadog harbour , this coastal route takes you to the pretty village of Borth y Gest and explores some of the beautiful beaches and coves, before dropping onto the wide 3 ,mile long beach at Black Rock Sands, the route leave the beach about halfway to continue along the edge of Morfa Bychan village, the walk then leads through a scenic caravan park Garreg Goch , and the opportunity to visit Black Rock Sands Beach and for some stunning views before heading back downhill to Borth y Gest village


 Moel y Gest 

Moel y Gest is small but mighty , It stands alone, Porthmadog's very own little hill, but don't underestimate it !  It can be steep to ascend the walk up Moel y Gest and the summit involves a few stretches of easy scrambling that just adds to the fun in my opinion! Moel Y gest is 263 meters high and you will be rewarded with some spectacular views.   


Walk  BeddGelert (Gelerts Grave)

This walk gives an excellent taster to Snowdonia-part scenic gorge  walk, part upland boggy moorland with glimpses of Wales mining heritage and with beautiful views across the valley to the mountains around Beddgelert or if you want to avoid the higher mountains areas (due to weather or fatigue) Easy accessible 2.5km walk on very good paths. Probably the easiest walk here - with the walk just to Gelerts Grave even easier !

Cader Idris
Cader Idris is one of the most southerly high mountains in the U.K with many upland species reaching there southerly limit here , The Minffordd path to the mountain begins on the southern side near the Tal y LLyn lake, A car park located behind the Minfford hotel, The Pony path begins in the north, from the car park at Ty Nant, The Massif itself compromises of corries, summit ridges, steep scree slopes and cliffs, Towards the south, there is a large U-Shaped glaciated valley, absolutely worth the walk!
