  1. Immediately after leaving the National Trust car park at Penbryn Beach, turn up the farm track on your right. The footpath is signposted from the top of the track, and will take you down into a steep gully leading to the small sickle- shaped beach Traeth Bach, and up past the Iron Age fortified settlement Castell Bach, before finally dropping down into Llangrannog where you can find lots of cafes and restaurants.
