Little Orme on Penrhyn Bay travel guide
Travel Guide for Wales and England >  Mountains in Wales and England >  Little Orme
The Little Orme (141m)(Creigiau Rhiwledyn in Welsh) is a limestone headland situated between Llandudno Bay and Penrhyn Bay in Conwy County, North Wales. The Little Orme is the lesser known of the two headlands, the Great Orme and the Little Orme, that define the beautiful Llandudno Bay.

Limestone quarrying took place on the Little Orme in the 19th Century and continued to the mid 20th Century. There is little evidence today of any industrial activity except for the contours of the land on the eastern slopes and some abandoned industrial machinery.

The Little Orme may well be less well known than its bigger brother the Great Orme, but the views from the summit are no less spectacular.
The North Wales Path crosses the Little Orme, and it is worth a scramble to the summit for the fabulous views of both Llandudno Bay and the Great Orme to the west, and Penrhyn Bay and Rhos Point to the east. A short detour from the path leads to the secluded Angel Bay, Porth Dyniewaid in Welsh, where seals can often be seen, and locals visit during warm summer days.

Anglers are often to be seen on the rocks at Angel Bay fishing for those elusive Sea Bass (are there any other type of Bass?), and those even more elusive dolphins and porpoises are sometimes to be seen in the clear waters off the Little Orme.

The Little Orme is soon to be included in Wales' newest attraction the All Wales Path and I am sure the Little Orme section of the route will be a big hit with visitors to Wales.
