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 4 miles east of Criccieth is the gateway to Llŷn with it's long high street and pretty harbour on the northern shores of the Glaslyn Estuary. Meanwhile, about 8 miles west of Criccieth is the unofficial capital of Llŷn, Pwllheli. The town has one of the busiest weekly open air markets in the country, as well as an award winning marina and two beaches.

Further west still 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. More info on Llyn.info>>
