Walked up here from Llandudno using the main road & path that goes off. Worth it for the view of the Great Orme & Llandudno, and also the the view of the other side (Colwyn Bay). I'd advise you wear covered footward (e.g. not sandals)...More

Went by car and parked on the road. Walked to the little orme via a small path beside the houses. Easy walk across the grassy slopes with the sea birds below and the sea glinting in the beautiful sunshine. Nice place to eat your sandwiches...More

Nice place right at the end to go fishing and a walk to see the local sea lion in the water. Lots of paths to follow and relatively clean apart from some people leaving the dog poo bags on the ground or throwing them towards...More

Really enjoyable walk around the Little Orme which was surprisingly flat. At Angel Bay we sat and watched 11 Grey Seals pulled out on the beach which pleased my better half no end.

Other reviews say things like 'not to be missed' etc and I whole heartily agree with them. It's the last day of our holiday and we are a bit walked out but I'm so glad we did this one. Nesting cormorants & fulmars, bird song...More
