Four and a half mile walk around Nefyn golf course and Porth Dinllaen

As we drove towards Nefyn it got cloudier and then started to rain, as we turned right after Trefor it was drizzly and as we approached Nefyn the skies cleared. We parked on the Nat: Trust car park and wasted one fifty as the machine was bust and they do not charge out of season. Then a big black cloud came and the heavens opened, it looked like we may be going home but as quick as it started it stopped. We got ourselves ready and set off up the hill to the golf course, the views getting better, we could see Porth Dinlaen to our right. We set off down the road on the course and at the green keepers shed turned left heading for the end of a hedge up the hill. Here we turned left up an enclosed path following this up hill and round to the right. We crossed a lane and immediately turned right on the path which took us downhill to the sea. Here we met the coastal path at the bay with a small bridge over the river. We turned right again and scrambled up hill to the gate onto the golf course again. We passed the time of day with a couple of golfers who told us we could get a drink at another pub if the Ty Coch was shut. Now we followed the path along the cliffs for what seemed an eternity until we reached the lookout on the point. The views were superb all round, now we turned back and moved to the new lifeboat station, a lovely wood and stone clad building with a copper roof. Now we picked up the rough path that took us to Porth Dinlaen, along here we stopped for lunch at a seat hidden back from the wind. Suitably refreshed we went into Porth Dinlaen and called at the Ty Coch for a beer. We sent Oli and Lucia a picture from here. Now it was getting colder so we headed off down the beach to the car park. A very nice walk with stunning views.
