Visited Penmon from Beaumaris, it was stunningly beautiful, peaceful with the bell tolling in the distance, rock pools for the children and scenery to appreciate beyond words. Will visit for a day next time. Well worth it.

Been a few times on my own, very peaceful place. Whilst camping with the family we got up early and went to Penmon, was their first visit and we were treated to a spectacular sunrise as it rose above the lighthouse and puffin island. Always a treat to visit and photograph

The dull toll of the lighthouse bell is very haunting and very atmospheric. We were lucky enough to watch Dolphins swimming and jumping in the sea today so do keep a close eye on the water! We didn't expect it at all. The road, which is a toll road of £2.50, has been greatly improved since our last visit when... More

On my Anglesey travels I recently ticked off another fine location on this historic isle. Visited St Seiriols church firstly and felt the ages that have passed between its walls. Celtic stone artefacts and spiritual stained windows and the chance to leave a candle burning and a prayer to be read out at the next communion are all on offer... More

Interesting abbey ruins. Lovely old church. The Celtic carved crosses are just wonderful to see. The walk through to the cell is magical. The dovecote is the largest I've ever seen. Wonder why there aren't any doves nesting there though.

On a nice sunny day, I am pretty sure this shore must have stunning views. However this wasn't the case for us. Make sure you have the weather on your side.

Had a wonderful time exploring the shoreline at Penmon Point both walking along the shore and the inland footpaths. Great views of Puffin Island and the mainland with the dramatic mountains. Make sure you stop at the church, dovecote and well on the way back a very peaceful area to stroll around.

The priory and dovecote were very interesting and we marvelled at the 1000 year old crosses and font. We didn't object to the £2.50 charge having researched it in advance and found the man collecting tolls pleasant and helpful. This is on private land and they do have to pay for road upkeep somehow. They have obviously had several sections... More

A slightly surreal experience as you feel as though you are going to the end of the world and then realise how close you are to the mainland. It is a wonderful location and differs dramatically depending on the weather. All beautiful and helped by the discreet cafe for a warming cuppa whn it's chilly.

As an archaeology degree holder, I found the whole area fascinating. The ruined abby and the dover cot are beautiful and the church holding the stone crosses is well worth a look as is the well. Don't know why everyone whines about the £2.50 to see these buildings and then drive up the coast toll road to the point. That... More
