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

Stunning place that we came across by accident. We almost turned around when we were asked to pay a £2.50 toll to drive up a private road (we saw a couple of people turn around) as we were unsure as to what it led to. However I am glad we decided to go as the view was absolutely stunning. We... More

Follow the signs to Penmon and the The Priory. Here you will find the remains of Penmon Priory. Parking of £2.50 here includes travelling on to Penmon Point and it is well worth the money. This is now a National Trust property. When you get to the point you will find fantastic views to Snowdonia and the Great Orme plus... More

The Priory has Saxon crosses, Norman arches and wonderful carving. Well worth a visit. Lovely views of lighthouse and Puffin island from the Point

Really awesome views when you get to the lighthouse and the 'Point' itself. Didn't get to spent all too much time there but looked like it could be a really great place for long walk. Be sure to check out the Priory with their two Celtic crosses and the dovecot, all in great condition.
