The north coast of Anglesey is very different from other parts of the island with rugged cliffs and sandy coves. As it is less well known, it is also much quieter. Point Lynas is situated in the middle of a particularly rugged part of the coast - the point itself looking like a finger of land projecting out into the sea. The headland creates a rip tide where the headland forces strong tides out into the sea, which is why there was a need for a lighthouse. The tidal race brings in an abundance of sea-life within easy view off the end of the headland.
The headland itself has some fantastic rock formations, tall cliffs of folded rock with large clefs in it and some sea caves. The rocks are covered in lichens and mosses, adding fantastic colours of yellow, orange and green.
The headland is covered with heather and is spectacular in August, with a purple bloom covering the whole headland. We have been grazing ponies to improve the condition of the heather and this certainly seems to be working. In the spring there are lots of rare orchids to be seen in various parts of the headland.
