Must See & Do:
In most weather conditions it will pose no problems for reasonably fit walkers. The navigation is also quite easy as the path follows the railway track fairly closely. In summer months there will be hordes of people climbing the path to the summit. Perhaps this is why it is known as the Motorway.
There are no amusement arcades or vendors along these beaches so you can enjoy a relaxing time soaking up the sun with only the sounds of the sea washing over you. Criccieth Castle dominates the town standing high on its rocky perch and is a must visit. Tickets: £5.50 Adults -- £3.30 Children -- Family £16.00
Dogs are allowed on the majority of the beaches. Some have sections which are restricted at the peak times of the year, but there is usually more than enough space to the sides of the main beach area for the dogs to run along and play.

The scarp face is magnificently dark and brooding and seemingly inaccessible to all but the very brave. It's no surprise that this place was once thought to have sinister origins. There is often a plume of steam rising over the top of the dark cliffs and towering peaks, resembling a chimney. This is as the result of moist air from the sea hitting the rock face. Legend has it that when the steam is rising above the cliffs, the Devil is cooking in the 'Devil's Kitchen'.
Beautiful to drive, amazing to cycle exhausting to walk
