Be your own rock star on a wildife-rich coastal walk

As the ocean batters the Welsh coast, even the hardiest of rocky outcrops succumb to its power. But not without a fight.

It's this never-ending tussle that gives us spectacular formations - none more iconic than those at Three Cliffs Bay, on the Gower Peninsula, or indeed the dramatic, wildlife-rich sea cliffs at South Stack, on Holy Island, Anglesey, where on a clear day you can see across to the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland. A spectacular finale to a spectacular walk.

You can read more about these literally breathtaking walks in the summer 2022 issue of Welsh Coastal Life (download for free, here). In the meantime, here are your downloadable Route Guides.

ROUTE 1 - Walk the Cefn Bryn ridgeline to spectacular Three Cliffs Bay on Gower

ROUTE 2 - Hike striking sea cliffs and climb diminutive Holyhead Mountain on Anglesey
