Mwnt to Aberporth

Distance 8km (5 miles), grade - moderate

A remote section of Coast Path that is positioned along the top of cliffs and coastal slopes and below the fringe of the agricultural land. The tranquilly and isolation of this section induces a feeling of separation from the pace of modern life.

As you approach Aberporth the path swings inland along Cwm Gwrddon in order to avoid the MOD base.
