The Snowdonia Mountains and Coast area includes the Llŷn Peninsula, Cambrian Coastline, Conwy Valley and Hiraethog.
‘Land of contrasts’ is one of those overused clichés scattered around travel guides with gay abandon. But here, it happens to be true. One minute you’re up, up and away in the mountains. Next stop, you’re on the beach. It’s no exaggeration to say that you can feel on top of the world in the morning (Snowdon’s peak experience), and have Saharan quantities of sand beneath your feet in the afternoon (at Harlech, Dinas Dinlle or Black Rock Sands).
That’s not quite so surprising when you consider that Snowdonia Mountains and Coast embraces the Snowdonia National Park, Llŷn Peninsula (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and around 200 miles of coastline.
