Aberdaron and whistling sands

On a sunny day there is nothing nicer than a drive right round the peninsula. Two of our favourite spots to stop off for a picnic are the delightful former fishing village of Aberdaron on the westerly tip of the Llyn and the magically named whistling sands (they do!!) beach at Porthor. From Aberdaron you can take a boat trip out to visit the abundant wildlife and picturesque coasltine of  Bardsey Island.

The sands really do whistle at whistling sands beach, Porthor. Honest! Well on a warm day it has been known. Kids and big kids at heart will love this small secluded beach with handy beachside café. Grab a cuppa and a piece of cake and sit and watch the sand castle building, kite flying, sand squeaking visitors enjoy all that this beautiful beach has to offer.

A trip to Aberdaron wouldn't be complete without a visit to Porth y Swnt. The National Trust visitor centre offers an introduction to the culture and history of the Llyn peninsula and is a great starting point for exploring this amazing corner of North West Wales.

If you want to walk off your calorific picnic then join the Wales Coast path and take in the dramatic scenery on a walk to Porth Meudwy.
