Boulder clay cliffs at Porth Nefyn
The rate of retreat of these cliffs has been reduced by the provision of rock barriers and groynes. A comparison with the large scale OS map of 1890 shows little change in the coastline. Nevertheless, signs of landslides , mainly triggered by high rainfall totals, are evident along the path.
