Walk: Porth Ysgo
Map: Lleyn Peninsula West / Pen Llyn Ardal Orllewinol 253
Directions: On the B4413 from Llanbedrog, carry on into Aberdaron village centre, where you shall see a signpost for Rhiw which you should follow and you should then head out of the village up a steep hill, with the churchyard on your right. Within two miles you will come across a crossroads with a post box, turn right here and you should come to what looks like a disused farm, with a pond on the left. The car park is around the back of the outbuildings on your right.
Say it!: Porth Ysgo: porth us-go

 

Porth Ysgo with Maen Gwenonwy (island) beyond.

 Porth Ysgo is nestled within the cliffs between Porth Neigwl/Hell's Mouth and Aberdaron. The descent to the beach is down a flight of over 150 steps, crisscrossing the side of the cliff. If you want to miss out all of these steps though, you can! So don't be put off if you would still like to explore this area, However, it is worth noting that the paths are steep and uneven in places.

Start from the car park at the farm. You should be able to see a public footpath sign pointing down a rough track. Follow the public footpath to the left slightly and you will soon find yourself following a small stream in the bottom of the small valley. When the valley opens out at the end you should find yourself looking out across the sea across to Enlli/Bardsey in the distance. A narrow dirt path leads off to the right, follow this to the top of the cliff and the top of the steps to the beach. If you don't want to go down the 150 or so steps, you should stay on the previous path, which follows the hillside round to the left. If you choose to go down to the beach, follow the same steps back up to the top of the cliffs to get back to the main path. Once back on this path, continue around the hill side, rather than going back the way you came.

You will come to a style and you should see another small stream. Walk upstream following the path. This path leads all the way back up to a country lane. When you get to this lane turn left and after just over about a quarter of a mile, you will find the car park you started on.
