A relaxing jorney in the car to the point, lovely views and even in storms it was fascinating.

Lovely drive and had a wonder around the Penmon Monastry, and the Dove cote, plus a little walk to the well. Paid £2.50 to continue the journey to the Penmon lighthouse. Did... read more

Lovely drive and had a wonder around the Penmon Monastry, and the Dove cote, plus a little walk to the well. Paid £2.50 to continue the journey to the Penmon lighthouse. Did this trip twice, once in lovely sunshine, so able to walk down to the light house and second time we watched the waves bash over the lighthouse, wonderful... More

Lovely drive, you pay £2.50 for the pass toll and parking / entrance for the priory. The views from the beach to the lighthouse and puffin island are wonderful.

Fabulous place to explore for a day out. Dogs welcome at the Pilot House Cafe. The kids love the ice creams and along with a pleasant greeting, Hayley makes the best cakes & refreshments. If you forget the kids fishing nets don't worry... plenty for sale at a reasonable price at the cafe. Take a trip to the beautiful Penmon... More

Peaceful and picturesque location with the lighthouse and stony beach. Good spot for a quiet picnic or a ramble about. A nice add on to the priory visit

One of our favourite places to visit on Anglesey. There is a beautiful old dove coup, church and ancient well (brilliant for making your wishes come true ;0). Further along the road, after a small toll charge), you arrive at the most stunning views and lighthouse, with a lovely cafe at the end. A lovely morning/afternoon out.

Worth a visit but thought the toll was overpriced. If the money was used to improve the track or parking area we wouldn't have minded.

It costs £2.50 to drive down to the point - you get a great view, and there is some artwork there too - which was interesting. Don't expect to see any puffins though ! If you need to use the toilet you have to buy something in the cafe !

Visited here this week, the views of the lighthouse and the area are definitely worth a visit. Take your binoculars and you may see seals and porpoise and dolphins as did we. The cafe is dog friendly and reasonably priced. We weren't aware of the toll charge beforehand but the views make it worthwhile. Some car owners refused to pay... More

We visited in may so missed the worst of the crowds, which I guess helps. Sunny and clear day so enjoyed lovely views of the mountainous mainland. Cafe was a bonus - friendly staff and awesome scone with jam and cream. Also enjoyed messing about in the rock pools with our 3 year old. Visited the well, dovecote, church and... More
