AberdaronThe tiny village of Aberdaron sits on the western tip of the Llyn and is often referred to as the Lands’ End of Wales. With a population of just 1,000 it was once a ship building centre and port, and has a deep maritime, religious and industrial history. In the middle ages it was a resting place for the pilgrims visiting Bardsey Island and is today, weather permitting, still a popular place from which to set off on a boat trip to the island.

The ancient St Hywyn’s Church clings to the edge of the shore on Aberdaron and has close links with the abbey on Bardsey. Aberdaron has a large sandy beach for families and is popular with ramblers due to its many scenic walks. There are plenty of self-catering cottages, camping sites as well as a couple of hotels on the edge of the beach which have restaurants open to the public, and great views out to sea.
