Porth Meudwy is a small cove at the tip of the Llŷn Peninsula that was once the embarkation point for pilgrims making the journey to Bardsey Island. It was said that three pilgrimages to Bardsey equalled one to Rome.

Modern use

Today it still serves as the departure point for your visit to the island and as a small port for the handful of local fishermen who make their living catching crab and lobster in the waters around Aberdaron.

In summer the fishing boats are joined in the cove by traditional sailing boats - built using designs unique to the Llyn - for the annual regatta.

2) Llŷn Adventures

Between Whitsun and September 2016 there will be ‘turn up and have a go’ kayaking sessions on offer at Aberdaron through an exciting partnership with Llŷn Adventures.

These introductory kayaking sessions run from Aberdaron beach using single seat and tandem sit on top kayaks which are easy to paddle and are very stable.

Sessions vary depending on the sea conditions. When the sea is calm we offer a scenic journey learning about the fascinating coastline, rich local history and incredible wildlife including sea birds like puffins and Manx shearwaters, as well as seals and porpoises. If the sea is rough and the weather is still favourable we will offer surf sessions in the waves.

During the session you will be looked after by a qualified kayaking coach who will provide you with all the necessary equipment and look after you throughout your adventure
