Lleyn AONB, Visitor & Tourism Guide

Stunning peninsula
A peninsula or finger of land jutting out from mainland North Wales. To the west of Snowdonia National Park and south of the Anglesey AONB. Within the unitary authority of Gwynedd.

To the north of the AONB is Caernarfon Bay, to the south is the upper part of Cardigan Bay.

We've researched the peninsula many times over the past decade and in many ways it resembles Cornwall. Spend time here and you get the impression that there's a lot of money heading west to holiday on the Lleyn Peninsula. Some, for example, compare Abersoch to Rock/Padstow on the River Camel and Estuary.

Glorious coastline
The coastline, particularly along the southern edge of the AONB, is glorious. The Warren at Abersoch is impressive, the dramtically named Hell's Mouth around the corner is popular with surfers and families. We'd also recommend a stroll around the western tip of the peninsula which offers fine views to Bardsey Island.

Places in which to base yourself
The obvious destinations are Pwllheli and Abersoch. Criccieth is lovely (and has an impressively located castle) and Porthmadog is a gateway to the AONB.

To be honest, we're talking about a reasonably small area so as long as you don't mind driving a wee way, it's perfectly possible to base yourself in Snowdonia National Park and head out to the AONB on days when you're not exploring the mountains.
