Walk - Fort Belan coastal circuit
This 4.6 mile almost entirely level walk follows the sandy shore and dunes along to the western mouth of the Menai Straits, then skirts around the curious and historic Fort Belan coastal fortress and its picturesque dockyard and harbour, returning along the saltmarsh edge of Y Foryd.
|Outbound along the sands|
Continuing past these fortifications, the route skirts the picturesque Fort Belan dockyard, then returns inland alongside the saltmarshes which bound the edge of the airfield.
|Returning, towards Snowdonia|
|Sandy shoreline edged by a steep pebble bank|
Facilities: Cafe and public toilets in nearby Dinas Dinlle. Caernarfon Airport Cafe, Caffi Hems, is also nearby.
The Dinas Dinlle shoreline is good for a picnic, though it can be windswept!
