Went to visit Penmon Point - It is beautiful and quite marvellous, lighthouse and Ynys Seriol looked beautiful. Pebbly storm beach backed by limestone cliff and arch. The cafe however is awful. Very poor quality overpriced coffee coupled with the surliest service I have ever experienced anywhere in the world. I will certainly visit Penmon again but will not go... More

All along the road to Penmon point there are laybys where until recently you could stay overnight for a night or two. I used to come each year for maybe one or two nights .we shopped in Beaumaurice and enjoyed the walks and views. When we left you would not have known we had been there. Now the council has... More

We go to Penmon Point regularly and love the peace and quiet and the stunning, ever-changing views. The lighthouse with its bell ringing every 30 seconds and the views of Puffin Island, the Great Orme, and Snowdonia are wonderful. There is an extremely friendly chap who takes the toll payment for each car and will give you advice and guidance... More

Beautiful area; went to see where my wife used to go as a child. A 'thug' in steel toe-capped boots approached out car and just said "£2.50". We said 'no' because it was free when my wife was a child and he just started being abusive, so we left. This man is one of the most disturbing people I've had... More

This place really is absolutely beautiful. We visited on a warm sunny morning and the road leading in is so pretty. First stop is the priory and there is a real air of tranquility here. If you wish to go out to the point and lighthouse this is where you pay the toll. We had no problem with paying this... More

Its a beautiful place - lovely coastal views across the Menai Straits toward Conwy and Llandudno. The Lighthouse is good too and there are boat trips out to Puffin Island behind the lighthouse from Beaumaris. There is a little café by the car parking area. There is a good walk down to the Point if you prefer to park further... More

Not being able to get to Puffin Island this was the next best thing! Great walking around the beach and the well signed trails make for a busy afternoon. Great tea shop with amazing Scones too

... or just watching the world go by. You pay a £2.50 toll to drive up to the point, where you can park and wander down to the lighthouse at low tide. Then stop off at the priory and church on your return.

Short drive along a private toll road £2.50 Beautiful scenery, looking out towards Puffin Island and the lighthouse. Just go and watch the world go by, listen to the birds and the sea and relax.

Drive past Beaumaris and at Penmon church, pay your fee and you can drive along the toll road to the spectacular views from Penmon point. There's a little cafe there. Then drive back and park up at the church. The church is usually open for you to wander around, and there's a very interesting (and huge!) dovecote you can go... More
