We visited penmon point in April, there is a 13th century priory at the bottom of the hill as well as a Dove Cot and a lovely little church, the toll to go to Penmon point from there is £2.50 but it's worth it for the fantastic views over puffin island and penmon lighthouse, we stayed the night and felt...

Went here last weekend (4-5 April) A beautiful, friendly and surprisingly varied small Welsh village. Plenty of restaurants and pubs. People extremely friendly and talkative. Small Spar type shop selling everything almost and as we travelling in our VW Transporter we had plenty of opportunity to re-stock on the essentials for our trip. Had excellent fish and chips and parked... More

Spotted a seal, puffins, cormorants and a stoat. Great spot for a picnic, building stone stacks. Great photo opportunities.

We drove out from Beaumaris to Penmon Point - it cost £2.50 to drive the toll road out to the point where there are amazing views of Puffin Island and the lighthouse. We sat for ages on the beach here. Great for walking, picnics, taking the kids and dogs and absolutely beautiful. You can also visit the old ruins of... More

We visited Penmon point on a glorious sunny afternoon in late match. You pay £2.50 toll to drive from the old priory out to the point but was well worth it. Take some good binoculars for a good view across to the Puffin island bird sanctuary. Lovely walks and a cafe if you fancy a cuppa. Though we did not... More

What a lovely peaceful place...We visited during a day of heavy rain and strong winds but the sight that greeted us as we drove over the hill was so special...Puffin Island and the Lighthouse were framed perfectly by a rainbow. Down on the beach we seemed haunted by the constant toll of the bell. Then the day got even better... More

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

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
