Whitesands Beach to Caerfai  Map

You follow the path to the small harbour of St Justinian's. There are spectacular views of Ramsey Island as far as Pen Dal-Aderyn, the most western point in Wales, then the vast expanse of St Bride's Bay dramatically opens up before you. As you continue along the coastline you can take a minor detour to St Non’s Chapel and the retreat. Said to be the 6th-century birthplace of the patron saint of Wales, St David, it remains a place of pilgrimage to this day. The small, rectangular chapel may be plain and simple, but its setting overlooking rocky St Non’s Bay is breath taking. You will soon complete your walk at Caerfai Bay
