Stroll - Caernarfon coastal circular
|Aber Foreshore, across the harbour from Caernarfon Castle|
Route: This easy walk of 4.5 miles follows the coastline out of Caernarfon. At low tide you can follow the shoreline or when the tide is higher, walk along the grassy roadside of this quiet lane.
It's easy to get into Caernarfon town from the Aber Foreshore - just walk across the harbour footbridge.
Obstacles: There may be a few livestock around in the fields of the middle section of this route.
From A487, follow Coed Helen Lane past the holiday park and onward past the harbour, onto Aber Foreshore Road.
Alternatively, you can park on various other car parks in Caernarfon town, then walk across the footbridge to Aber Foreshore from the Anglesey Arms end of the Castle/Harbour Car Park.
|Along the harbourside|
Facilities: There are public toilets (open seasonally) at the Aber Foreshore/Parc Coed Helen car park and also (all year round) on the Castle/Harbour car park.
The Anglesey Arms (by the Castle) is inexpensive and dog-friendly.
There are Picnic tables in Parc Coed Helen.
