Welcome to Aberdaron
Aberdaron is an ends-of-the-earth kind of place, with whitewashed, windswept houses weathering the squalls that blow in from sweeping, cliff-lined Aberdaron Bay. It was traditionally the last resting spot before pilgrims made the treacherous crossing to Bardsey Island and the religious settlement founded by St Cadfan in the 6th century. The little Gwylan Islands, just offshore, are North Wales' most important puffin-breeding site, while choughs, peregrines, hares and grey seals all thrive in the wild splendour of the surrounding country. Walking through this rare part of the world, with its infinite variety of light, stone and seascape, is something that stays with you.
