Sound of silence
Experience total peace and quiet at the very tip of the Llyn Peninsula. One of the most noticeable things about this special place is the lack of man-made noise. Relax and unwind with nature’s chorus - the sea, the birds and the wind.
The coastline paths around Mynydd Mawr are a great place to see a number of rare species, such as golden hair lichen, spotted rock rose and the distinctive chough.
The chough with their red bill and legs are a member of the crow family. They fly along the cliffs showing off their mastery of flight with wonderful aerial displays of swooping and diving.
