Plenty of things to see and do to keep everybody entertained!

Ty Coch beach There are numerous sandy beaches for you to visit - you will be truly spoilt for choice during your stay on the LLŷn Peninsula. This is the famous Porthdinllaen beach which is only two miles away from Garreg Lwyd Farm. Other beaches you will want to visit are Whistling Sands, recently featured on the BBC Coast programme, as well as Aberdaron and Abersoch beach.

Aberdaron is an idyllic little village of white-painted fishermen's houses and cottages perched on the tip of LLŷn, the Land's End of North Wales. The famous poet R S Thomas was the vicar of St Hywyn's Church that lies at the water's edge.

Aberdaron

coastal path

Have you ever turned the corner on a coastal path and seen seals basking on the rocks? This is a regular occurrence at the tip of the Porthdinllaen headland. Follow the coastal path around Lŷn, or venture up Garn Bodeuan (280 metres) or The Eifl - the highest point on the LLŷn Peninsula. There are three peaks - Tre'r Ceiri (485m), Garn Ganol (564m) and Garn Fôr (444m). Tre'r Ceiri has one of the best examples of an Iron Age hill fort in northern Europe. The views from here are breathtaking.
