Right to roam

The "right to roam" in Wales is currently the same as in England and does not allow access to open access land for the purposes of hang-gliding or paragliding.

The legislation is enacted by the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 and the section relevant to us is Schedule 2 on page 75:

1. Section 2(1) does not entitle a person to be on any land if, in or on that land, he—

(s) engages in any organised games, or in camping, hang-gliding or paragliding

This is a small mud-cliff, 20m or so high, providing interesting soaring when low cloud or high winds preclude flying on mountain sites. The cliff edge is soarable for several kilometres along the coast in moderate breezes. On a hang glider it is possible to jump back to the hills behind, from where a spectacular coastal run is possible to Nefyn and back. Watch out for rotor at the cliff edge.

Getting to take-off: 

Turn off the A499 just NE of the village of Trefor. Follow the signs for the campsite and drive down the lane to the farmhouse. Ask permission to fly at the farm. Continue on to the cliff edge at the end of the caravan park, and rig in the field to the NE of the caravans.
