Lleyn is an area in the county of Gwynedd, North Wales. It is, broadly speaking, the peninsula sticking out westwards beyond Snowdonia. Its beaches and headlands rival those of the better known Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in south-west Wales.

Beaches and Headlands

The largest beach is Hell's Mouth between Abersoch and Aberdaron. Other large beaches are Llanbedrog and Nefyn. Smaller but really delightful beaches are those at Porth Oer on the north coast near Aberdaron and Porth Ysgo on the south coast, where there is something for lovers of industrial archaeology as well.

There are impressive headlands west of Aberdaron, giving superb views over Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli). There are many others but a really fine one is Mynydd Penarfynedd to the east of Porth Ysgo. The road from Hell's Mouth has reopened after a major landslide closure

Other destinations

Nant Gwrtheyrn on the north coast, where a tiny hamlet, until recently only accessible by sea, has been converted into a Welsh language and cultural centre. Some good quarrying remains on the cliffs.

Carn Fadryn is an ancient earthwork on a mound roughly in the centre of the peninsula, with terrific coastal views north, west and south and views west to the mountains of Snowdonia.

Bryncir Woolen Mill on the A487 is well worth a visit.
