Places to visit


If you prefer an off the beaten-track location, visit Aberdaron on the remote western tip of Llŷn Peninsula. A strong sense of Welshness surrounds this village of stone and whitewashed buildings, situated in a valley beside a long sandy beach. For a breathtaking view of Llŷn's savagely beautiful coastline and the wildlife haven of Bardsey Island, visit the summit of Mynydd Mawr only two miles away. Porthmadog on the Glaslyn Estuary has two beaches, one at nearby Borth-y-Gest (sand and pebble) and the other at Morfa Bychan, where Black Rock Sands stretch for two miles. Porthmadog is another popular harbour town with a fascinating maritime heritage and quality gift shops.

On the northern coastline you will find Nefyn and Porthdinllaen. The whistling sands of Porthor just 2 1/2 miles north of Aberdaron are a must to experience. The grains of sand on this attractive crescent-shaped beach whistle or squeak underfoot on a dry day. The small village of Dyffryn Ardudwy has attractive dunes and a beach, and the Cromlech site commands a sweeping view across Tremadog Bay to the Llŷn Peninsula. For an amazing variety of sea shells, visit Shell Island near Llanbedr.
