Rocky paths in places, and boggy after rain around Seacroft.
Calculated time is computed with the distance, the height difference, and an average speed of 2.2 mph. For an intermediate walker, this time includes small breaks.
(D/A) From the car park entrance, turn right past Lôn Penrhyn Garw. Pass the first beach and at the second keep left of the roadside wall.
(1) Turn left into a lane (Porth Diana) with a footpath sign. At the top of the slope keep right, then turn left onto a footpath before a row of bungalows. Go through a gate into low heathland and follow the left-hand edge past an information panel and through a kissing gate. After another kissing gate leading into a grassy caravan site, bear right at a corner and pick up a path parallel to the wall on your right above a reedy pond; pass to the right of a house. Cross the road and take the footpath opposite across a garden and driveway then pass between hedges and walls to emerge at the end of a residential driveway. Follow the drive out to the road into Tyn Rhos Camping Site and turn right.
(2) At a triangular junction, walk right of the grassy island then pass between boulders opposite onto low heathland. Cross the heath, with mobile homes to your left, to another service road. Follow the road opposite, descending the valley towards the sea. Bear right at the boatyard then turn right up a rocky slope following the coast path sign. Keep left, still following the coast path, at a waymark post marking a junction with another footpath, with views over a rocky inlet and caravan-dotted headland on your left.
(3) At a waymark post, ignore the coast path as it heads inland (an alternative route back to the Seacroft via the road), instead continuing along a permitted path ahead which descends round the head of a rocky inlet and then roughly follows a wall to a second rocky beach. Continue along the wall via a rocky scramble to an arch in a stone wall. Beyond this, continue above the foreshore then aim just left of a prominent bungalow to a stepped concrete wall, where an alleyway leads off right to a parking area. Turn right then left and follow the residential road as it curves right to the public road.
(1) Turn left past Porth Diana, keeping left of the concrete wall this time. For a straightforward return stay on the road, but for a last taste of the coastline turn left at some bollards (before a postbox) onto another permitted path that rounds the headland below garden walls and past a flagstaff. As you approach the beach, turn right onto a path that passes between gardens to a road. Turn left past the rear of the Seacroft and then left back to the pub entrance.(D/A)
