Situated along the beautiful coast of Anglesey, Point Lynas is an active light house built in the 17th century. The lighthouse consists of a lighthouse tower, the head keepers house and two keeper’s cottage. All of this is contained within a high castellated wall that can only be accessed through a stone arched gateway.

Off the shore of Point Lynas, an array of marine mammals can be seen with the most common being the resident Harbour Porpoises. You can also see dolphins and porpoises feeding alongside Gannets in a spectacular frenzy. Upon parking, it is a pleasant 10-minute walk through fields of grazing horses to reach the area for viewing.
