Llŷn Peninsula

The Llŷn Peninsula is one of Wales’ finest Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers the chance to escape the ever increasing hustle and bustle of modern day life. The rolling and often dramatic coastline of Llŷn runs down into sweeping sandy beaches, hidden coves and rocky cliffs along a coastline of nearly 100 miles which has a charm unique to this corner of Wales.

The gulf stream is clearly evident on the peninsula, bringing with it warmer weather, higher sea temperatures and few or no frosts. However, the snow capped mountains of neighbouring Snowdonia are stunning during the winter.

Hafan Pwllheli Marina is a sheltered harbour with the capacity for 400-berths on pontoons with piles and has access at virtually all states of the tide. Elsewhere there are local authority launches from coves and smaller harbours around the coast.

The sheltered waters of Abersoch are a playground for watersports enthusiasts. Good weather will allow you to visit offshore islands, while some spots of the coast are only accessible by boat – so you may have a little cove all to yourself.
