Love this place, the views, the wildlife, the tolling of the lighthouse bell, places to camp and the lovely Pilot House Cafe.

Penmon Point is possible the most peaceful place I have ever been - so quiet, we were pretty much the only people there, with the tolling of the bell in the lighthouse being the only sound other than our footsteps on the stone beach. On out visit in February we saw dolphins swimming in the water out towards Puffin Island.... More

Parked at the Priory and walked along the toll road to Penmon Point. Lovely view of the lighthouse and puffin island from here. Only loos are at the café by obtaining a key at the café once you have eaten/drank in there. Had a lovely cup of tea and huuuuge pece of cake with lashings of cream which set us... More

The combination of the scenery at Penmon Point and the remains of ancient Priory buildings makes this a well worthwhile destination. The toll of £2.50 per car which covers both parking at Penmon Priory and use of the road down to the point is an absolute bargain! There is so much of interest, the priory church, the old dovecote, St... More

A group of photographers spent several hours both down at the lighthouse, where we had snacks and coffees at the cafe (and use of their loo), and at the priory, well and dovecote. It was a glorious afternoon when we were down at the point and the views to the island and across to Snowdonia were fabulous. Unfortunately by the... More

I've now made the walk from the Penmon bus stop to Penmon Point several times. The views across the Menai Strait never get old whether in clear sunshine or battering rain storm. The old priory and and the well and dovecote give an historical context and once sighted from the brow of the hill leading down to the point the... More

Came down here on a perfect September morning. Brilliant views to Trywn Du lighthouse, Puffin Island and the mainland. Only downside was the number of visitors who come and can't be bothered to take their own litter home - shame on them. No public toilets but if you fancy a drink there is a nice little cafe nearby

I didn't know it was free to park by the church so paid my toll (driving in a motorhome I was magnanimously told I could pay the £2.50 and not the coach fee of £5 - there was only me and the dog!!!) then told the vehicle was too large to go on the toll road. I have driven as... More

In addition to visiting Penmon Priory the above is a very interesting building. Entering through the small doorway to view inside is a must. The visit was made as part of a round walk from Llangoed which has a ruined castle and !FREE! parking nearby. Black Point is FREE on foot and not far to walk from the Priory to... More
