This geotrail starts at the Breakwater and brings you back along the coast to the Country Park through some of the oldest rocks in Wales, dating from some 522 million years ago.  You can either leave a car in the Country Park and walk to the Breakwater or there is room to park at the start of the road into the park near the Bond Warehouse and walk back afterwards.

The area around South Stack is a beautiful and facinating stretch of coastline with not only amazing geology, but many examples of how  it influences the landscape and land use. This walk follwows the coastal path within th AONB, and goes along a stretch of Heritage Coast that features in the Cybi Cicular Walk (great care should be taken along the coastal path which sometimes lies above sheer cliffs and can suffer from strong winds).

Llanddwyn Island is a magical place, best seen on a stormy day with the waves raging against wet rocks replendent in a range of hues.  On a hot sunny day, it feels like an island in the Aegean!  This area records an entire plate tectonic story, from the creation of the ocean floor as a mid-ocean ridge, seen here as pillow lavas, through its journey across the ocean basin where it picked up sediments, to its burial and metamorphism as plates collided and the rocks sank down into a deep ocean trench.
