This is a wonderful peninsula with terrific coastal scenery that sticks out westward beyond Snowdonia. It is quite narrow so that anybody with a car can easily get to both north and south coasts.

Many of the beaches are National Trust property, perhaps the best known being Porth Oer or Whistling Sands, though the lesser known southern beach of Poth Ysgo is a place of great beauty. At the end of the peninsula, beyond Aberdaron is a headland and glorious viewpoint overloking Bardsea Island.

Abersoch, on the south coast, is a popular sailing resort; Criccieth, with an old castle, was Lloyd-George's birth place and at the end of the peninsula on the southern side is the Itliaanate village of Portmeirion, noted for its Chian and Portmadoc with perhaps the best preserved railway in the UK.

Unfortunately there is no youth hostel in Lleyn.
