brilliant day out, took my nepthew here with the wife, the views are beautiful, you can go fishing, rock pool netting, great stone beach, amnd lovely walks. Could easily spend the day here and have a picnic in good weather. Note there is a toll for access. Take food and water. There is no toilet around either.

Visited here both in July and October of this year. This area boasts history dating back to 1000 AD. The artefacts and general information gives you a an idea of how things were on the island and it's definitely worth a visit if you are visiting Anglesey, or visiting nearby.

This is a lovely place to spend a few hours. Great little cafe with home cooked tasty food and friendly staff. Dogs were welcome too which was nice on a cold day so we didn't have to leave our jack Russell in the boot of the car while we had a hot drink. Well worth a visit.

Quite often come here to see the seals and porpoises and enjoy a walk to the lighthouse. Make sure you go to the loo before you arrive tho as there are no toilets on here.

Always find this a very peaceful place especially during non tourist season very atmospheric listening to the sea and the bell ringing every couple of minutes.What did we see but three dolphins jumping right out of the water and putting on a great free show. The priory and surroundings are interesting took some great pics.

Penmon, on the north-east tip of Anglesey is remarkably interesting for such a small place. The old priory is really atmospheric with the remains of the refectory and dormitory and an old pigeon loft and fish pond. Up the hill and over to the lighthouse which marks the channel between Anglesey and Puffin Island with a tea room where you... More

A place we often drive to for a quick relaxing getaway. The beautiful light house, rocky shoreline and the great view pls the wonderful fresh air. It's never been a bad day to go..and absolutely love the place. The drive down itself is also fantastic.
