The Llŷn Peninsula has a landscape that is quite different from the rest of Wales. To the south, the low lying pasture between Pwllheli and Llanbedrog is actually below the high tide level and has been reclaimed now that the Afon Penrhos has been diverted into Pwllheli and now drains into the marina along with the rivers Rhyd-hir and Erch.

Much of Llŷn, however is rolling countryside giving way occasionally to the odd volcanic hill, such as Yr Eifl and Garn Fadryn. These hills are part of a line that run from the northeast, at Bwlch Mawr, southwest to Mynydd Rhiw.

The rolling countryside has allowed a greater proportion of the land to be used for growing crops than is viable elsewhere in Wales, and though a fair amount of farmland on Llŷn is used for grazing it is not so uncommon to see crops being planted or harvested.
