Getting on the Water on Pen Llyn

Visit Pen Llyn the Coastal Holidays way

The Llyn has a long maritime history and the good news is you’re never far away from the coastline. With its impressive ancient sea cliffs, sheltered sandy bays, remote caves, calm or wild waters and smaller offshore islands, visitors can enjoy pursuits such as surfing, wind-surfing, kite surfing, scuba diving, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing or sailing, as well as fishing and swimming.

Sailing enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with Pwllheli Sailing Club and South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club which both offer some of the most competitive National, European and World Championships. Pwllheli Sailing Club is located in the marina and has a large and active offshore racing section as well as an active Sportsboat fleet. South Caernarvonshire in Abersoch holds the Annual Abersoch Dinghy Week and Abersoch Mirror Week as well as the Abersoch Keelboat Week and the Cardigan Bay Regatta.

Many ships have met their end around the coast, especially with the black spots of Hell’s Mouth and the Bardsey Sound being some of the most dangerous sailing waters around Britain when it’s stormy. There are diving schools which offer a wide range of services including tuition, equipment hire and servicing, together with boat charter.
