The Llŷn Peninsula

Stretching out into the Irish Sea, south of Anglesey, Llŷn is the the northern limit of Cardigan Bay. Immersed in the Gulf Stream, the peninsula enjoys warmer, sunnier weather than further inland.

Porthmadog, about 12 miles east of Pwllheli is the gateway to Llŷn with it's long high street and pretty harbour on the northern shores of the Glaslyn Estuary. A little closer to Pwllheli is the pretty seaside town of Criccieth with it's historic castle and views across to it's neighbour at Harlech.

West of Pwllheli is the popular resort of Abersoch with it's internationally recognised sailing waters and miles of sandy beaches. Near the tip of the peninsula is Aberdaron, this quaint little village backs it's own beach and is only a couple of miles from the western tip of the peninsula, which offers stunning views across to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island) and even Ireland on a clear day! On the north coast, Porthdinllaen is a must for any visitor, with it's pub on the top of the beach and views towards the iconic hills of Yr Eifl (lit. the fork). More info on Llyn.info>>
