Lleyn Peninsula is full of Welsh character and charm and offers a relaxing destination for those wishing to get away from the stresses and strains of modern life.  Lleyn Peninsula has been designated “An Area Of Outstanding Beauty”.

The long coastline of the Lleyn Peninsula offers something for everyone, picturesque beachside villages such as Llanbedrog, small sandy coves with dramatic cliff scenery, or the family resorts of Criccieth, Pwllheli and Abersoch with their larger beaches and tourist facilities. There are also quaint fishing villages such as Aberdaron, at the tip of the peninsula, the National Trust owned Porthdinllaen, near Morfa Nefyn and Borth-Y-Gest near Black Rock Sands

Only a short drive up the road is the village of Garnfadryn.  Garnfadryn mountain which reaches 1217 ft is a registered Welsh historic monument and is well worth the hike up for the amazing views it offers of  the Llyn Peninsula, Meirionnydd and Snowdonia.

Further afield, around 5 miles, you will find the area’s local beaches.  There are many to choose from all with different characters and features.   Hell’s Mouth, one of the more famous beaches is nearly four miles long and facing south west, Hells Mouth or Porth Neigwl is considered by many to be the best surf beach in Wales. Word soon gets out when conditions are right, and surfers come from all over the UK to take to the waters, sample the waves.

The nearest supermarket is Spar, which is 15 minutes drive away. There you will also find a local pharmacist and cash machine.

Morfa Nefyn has a large golf course with stunning beach views.  A short walk through the golf course takes you to a hidden gem of a beach tavern called “Ty Coch” (Red House).  There you can relax by the beach and enjoy the local food and ales the tavern has to offer.


Abersoch is another local village worth a visit.  It is a short 20 minute drive away.  Abersoch’s main Beach is a popular sandy beach, facing east and backed by sand-dunes. In the bay bathers share the waters with sailing and motor boats. Windsurfing is also a popular pastime. Bathing is considered safe due to a boat exclusion zone. On the horizon are the small St Tudwal’s Islands, where access is restricted; though pleasure boat-trips, around the islands and to view the resident seal colony, may be taken.
The village itself has a good choice of shops, restaurants and bars.
