An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
 
The Llŷn Peninsula offers some of the best scenery in the country, and yet is relatively undiscovered. There are many sandy beaches within easy reach which are the perfect ingredient for any family holiday - with one of the nearest being the famous Whistling Sands of Porth Oer. Or if you're a little more adventurous, why not walk up one of our local hills? On a clear day views stretch as far as Ireland in the west - with the majestic mountains of Snowdonia to the east, Cardigan Bay to the south and Anglesey to the north.

The Llyn Coastal Path is right on your doorstep. This footpath follows the coast of the peninsula and is nearly 100 miles in total, from Caernarfon in the north to Porthmadog in the south. Much of the coast is now owned by the National Trust, allowing access to the spectacular clifftops and headlands.

Nearby Aberdaron offers shops, cafes and pubs, as well as it's own fine sandy beach. Mynydd Mawr at the tip of the peninsula enjoys beautiful views across to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), some two miles offshore. There is a local boat service to the island when the weather is fine - well worth a trip to appreciate the island's facinating heritage and wildlife.

Also on the peninsula are the popular resorts of Abersoch, Pwllheli and Nefyn. Abersoch is famous as a centre for all kinds of watersports, whilst Pwllheli offers a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as it's award winning marina and beaches. Nefyn also has a sandy beach, and nearby Morfa Nefyn can go one better with a pub on the top of the beach at the small fishing hamlet of Porthdinllaen.
