The Llyn peninsula
The Llyn peninsula is one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in Wales, offering the perfect base for a memorable holiday. Whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, historical delights or are in need of some well-deserved pampering, this idyllic corner of North Wales won't disappoint.
A lovely family friendly beach in a sheltered bay. Popular with budding fishermen and perfect for building a 'Caernarfon'-inspired sand castle. Take a picnic and try your hand at rock pooling. Dog friendly all year round.
The Wales Coast path
The Wales Coast Path is a long distance footpath which follows or is close to the majority of the coastline of Wales. It runs past Trefor and continues round the peninsula affording stunning views.
Abersoch is a very popular seaside location with several stunning beaches (including Abersoch main beach, Porth Neigwl or Hell's Mouth and the pretty beach at Llandbedrog en route to Abersoch), lots of nice places to eat and a number of boutique shops. Dust down the surf board, grab the bucket and spade and keep some room for some post-beach fish n chips.
A short 20 minute drive away is Pwllheli, the main market town and unofficial capital of the Llyn peninsula. A bustling coastal town in an area of outstanding beauty. Fabulous selection of independent shops. We highly recommend Witches Brew Tea Rooms on Station Square for a cup of tea and a delicious homemade cake or a spot of lunch. You'll also find a cinema and leisure centre here - great for rainy days.
Situated on the coast at the edge of Snowdonia National Park, Criccieth is a pretty seaside town with an imposing hilltop castle and expansive blue flag beaches. With lots of independent shops and cafes there is plenty to do on a daytrip. This colourful and bustling town can also be reached by train from Pwllheli (10 min).
