After the Sarn Bach crossroads, there are a number of narrow lanes that head down to the far end of the beach before tackling the challenging 'Tocyn Brutal' hill. Two more miles of undulating roads will find you looping back to the golf course before the epic beach finish in front of a beckoning crowd.
