See the wildlife – seals, seabirds and dolphins – on coastal cruises (contact the Information Centre for details).

Good shopping with an interesting range of smaller shops – and be sure to call into the multi-award-winning Eurospar, famous for its local produce. Excellent leisure centre to keep the kids entertained, along with activity-packed Glasfryn Parc. Penarth Fawr medieval house nearby.
Scenic, challenging golf – a mix of parkland and links – at one of North Wales’s top courses.
