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

Set on the Eastern Peninsula you get great views of Puffin island & Mount Snowdon in the distance . Bring your binoculars & you might catch sight of Puffin & Seals .Would imagine @ the right time the sunsets could be specular

Our first visit to this lovely and very interesting spot. Toll fee, which includes access to the private road and both parking areas (by the dovecote and chapel, and at the point itself) was, to my mind, a very reasonable £3. £2.50 if you're in a car rather than a campervan like us and that's for all day. The man... More

Visited at the beginning of April, this is a lovely peaceful spot, very pretty and definitely worth a visit. However, word of warning, beware of the very large and extremely rude man who collects the toll money. It is not clear due to the lack of signage, what the toll fee covers. We presumed it was a toll for using... More

Why does it cost more money to visit this attraction if you go in a van with 2 seats, when a car seating 5 people costs less . Please little chubby man in the hut wearing a hat can you explain why. As a matter of principle I refused to pay the extra 50 pence so did not go to... More

Right before the toll road is a parking lot, which is included in the tool road fee. Stopping here allows you to see several sites at one time. St Seriol's church dates back to 1140, is still actively used at this time, and has the Penmon Cross located in the nave of the church. The Penmon Cross dates back to... More

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...
