"This is looking across the bay..." Gwynedd Off The Beaten Path Tip by steventilly

Gwynedd Off The Beaten Path: 32 reviews and 38 photos


This is looking across the bay to Little Orm. At the town end there is a nice pier and some shops, pubs and restaurants. Nothing so outstanding as to deserve a 'must see', but quite nice and fairly quaint.

From here you can get to Great Orm. This is the large mound behind the town. You can get to the top of this via a cable car, a tram or by walking up 'Happy Valley', a landscped garden. From the top there are great views as far as Snowdonia and apparently the Lake District - 'twas a tad cloudy when we went! There's also a childrens petting zoo on Great Orm.
