Say it!: Pen-y-Cil: pen-uh-kill


Porth Meudwy and Aberdaron beyond.

Pen-y-Cil is the southern end of the tip of the peninsula. The cliff top path to get there gives spectacular views across Aberdaron Bay an beyond. If you choose to walk to the tip, you will be rewarded with views across to Ynys Enlli/Bardsey Island.

Porth Meudwy, which you walk down to initially, is where most of the sailings across to Ynys Enlli depart from. This sheltered cove is also used by local fishermen.

From the car park, follow the track down the small valley to Porth Meudwy. Once you get down to the beach, turn right up the steps onto the cliff top and follow the line of the cliffs. The second inlet you come to gives you the choice to continue along the cliffs to the tip of Pen-y-Cil, whilst a path off to the right goes across some fields to a small lane. Once on the roads stay on them and keep right to return to the start. If continuing on to the tip of Pen-y-Cil, continue following the same path as before, which eventually ends up by some houses, from here turn left and this path takes you to the tip of Pen-y-Cil. On your return, you can continue straight on when you reach the houses instead of turning right for the way you came and follow the roads back from there.
