Sunday, 16 August 2020 (Group: Tawe Trekkers)
Start time 9:00
6 miles / 9.7 km
6 or 10 mile options.
Starting from Cwm Ivy we follow the Wales coast path anticlockwise firstly through Whiteford Burrows to Whiteford point and at low tide get up close to Whiteford Lighthouse, which is believed to be the last remaining cast iron lighthouse in the British Isles. We return along Whiteford Sands taking a stop for lunch in the shelter of the dunes, from here Trekkers can return to Cwm Ivy if they prefer the shorter 6 mile route. If anyone prefers a little longer and the forecast is favourable we continue around on the sands to Broughton Bay from here we join a short section of the Wales Coast Path before making our ascent of Llanmadoc Hill.
This walk is very exposed, please be prepared with correct gear for the forecast. Good boots recommended as the low tide route to the lighthouse is wet and uneven.
Dogs welcome, please be aware terrain at low tide to get close to the lighthouse is unsuitable for dogs.
