The coastal path, having finally reached some coast, now heads uphill for a short section! Either add it on as a strenuous last stretch for day 1, or as half of day 2. We keep it here as a separate section for simplicity.
Again this follows a slightly different route to the ‘officious’ route and chooses to descend to Llanaehaearn and maintain altitude than needlessly descending to Trefor. There’s a tricky section over faint moorland paths, but as the highest point of the walk, you’ll see the rest of the week’s walking stretch out ahead of you and you’ll finally feel like you’re walking the coast.
