Leaving Aberystwyth you will follow the path around the marina past the beach car park and behind Tanybwlch beach. On your left is Pen Dinas hill, once the home of an Iron Age hill fort thought to have been built 400 BC. Un-miss able is the monument shaped like a canon in memory of the Duke of Wellington. You will ascend onto the cliffs of Allt-wen before descending down to Morfa Bychan. You will reach Twll Twrw, a large hole in the cliff, is also known as Monk’s Cave.

Day 4: Conwy > Llanfairfechan (13 miles/ 21km)
This thirteen mile route leaves Conwy behind as you walk over the scenic Conwy Mountain. This walk is like stepping back in time as you pass ancient sites such as a hill fort and mystical Druid’s circle. End your walk in the pretty seaside resort of Llanfairfechan.
Day 5: Llanfairfechan > Menai Bridge (13 miles/ 21km)
Today begin your walk to the Menai Bridge, the bridge that connects the beautiful island of Anglesey to mainland Wales. Along this walk you will see a series of nature reserves, known loosely as the Lavan sands. These tidal expanses stretch towards Anglesey, and during low tide you can see the remains of ancient drowned forests here. You will see the environment undergo a transformation as you walk along this path, and lookout for views of Penrhyn Castle set out on an island in the estuary.
Day 6: Departure journey
Today you will depart for your journey home, or continue following the coastal path. You may want to spend the day exploring the island of Anglesey, an official Area of Outstanding Beauty.
