Worth the difficult walk down to explore these Victorian Brick works built to make fire bricks from the quartzite mined from the hills behind and used to line the furnaces making steel. The whole site is testament to man’s ingenuity and endeavour. The harbour is...More

Had to be the most glorious walk we have ever done. Not an easy trek as some parts are very steep, but worth it. You pass by the old building works, lively beaches. Super.

Really enjoyed this part of the coastal path, beautiful day, sun shining,heaven! The old brickworks at Porth Wen were really interesting. Were lucky enough to see two porpoises swimming together in the sea below the cliff top, three & a half hours of pure enjoyment.

We walked from Amlwch to Llaneilian bay, a 1.5 hour easy walk. The views from the cliff tops are stunning and unspoil. Then back to Amlwch harbour. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Even if you're not into walking it's still possible to drive a lot of the way around the coastal roads

Some many hidden gems, and Porth Wen should be a candidate for a UNESCO world hertiage site. Simpy awesome!
