Had a fantastic afternoon at Penmon Point superb views to the mainland and it's snowy mountains and to Puffin Island. Bring your camera and binoculars to get some great shots. We visited the cafe, which serves excellent food and coffee. Also had a take away scone, jam and cream! Well worth a visit!

Went to visit today and after the toll fee of 2.50 which didn't mind paying we started on the road and it is absolutely shocking the giant potholes some of which can not be avoided if we knew this in advance definitely would have avoided so beware

This is a great place to while away an hour or two. Make sure you see the beautiful priory, dovecot and well, and then head out to the point to hear the melancholy fog bell ringing at the lighthouse.

Lovely spot with the lighthouse and puffin island close to the beach. Cafe served excellent soup to warm us on a cold and windy day. Bring your binoculars for some excellent bird watching.
