Aberdaron can also boast of being the second sunniest place in mainland Britain in 2021, according to the Met Office.

Today the village is alive with the history and legends of its maritime past, accessible through the National Trust Visitor Centre in the village, Porth y Swnt. It is also famed as the last resting place of pilgrims before they made the perilous sea crossing to Bardsey Island (Ynys Enlli). The beautiful 12th century pilgrim's church of St Hywyn is a must to visit, perched above the bay.

A boat trip to Bardsey, known as the Island of 20,000 Saints, offers a memorable day out for all of the family, with the chance to see the large grey seal colony and seabirds including choughs, puffins and Manx shearwaters.
