Anglesey has some fantastic scenic and historical places, and this is near the top to visit on both counts. There is a priory, church and a fantastic dovecot and the toll road leads to a fantastic view of puffin island, a lighthouse and large buoy that sounds a bell. These waters mark the end of the Menai Straits and there... More

We went at night so no toll charge although it would be worth it on a nice day for a picnic. Lovely view. Able to walk to the lighthouse when the tide is out.

Pen on is a beautiful place to visit ,it changes according to the tides and weather conditions so no two visits there are the same . As its on private land there is a 2.50 toll charge ,but it worth every penny . There is a lovely little cafe there that serve lovely cakes and sandwiches .

Park up by the priory and church and have a look around and don't miss the dovecot which once kept over 900 pigeons for the medieval dinner table. Drive on past the toll gate for about half a mile and you will come to a great spot to view Puffin Island and look across to Snowdonia.

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
