Aberffraw: was once an important port, but the estuary gradually silted up, leaving the present coastline of sand dunes. The dunes range as high as 30 feet and more. The sculptured sand is stabilized by mar-ram grass near the sea, and patches of sea holly can be found in autumn. The buildup of dunes has also created the inland lake of Llyn Coron.
The coast has everything; rugged headlands jutting out into the sea, small fishing villages and harbors, sandy beaches, isolated coves, and cliff top grasslands.

Lynton and Lynmouth are like twins, one village complementing the other. Lynmouth is wedged between a steep cliff and the ocean on North Devon's coast, while Lynton looks down from the 500ft (152m) high cliff top on her twin. The views from either are glorious. You can see, on a clear day, across to the Welsh coast.
But proximity is about all these twins have in common. Lynmouth is a traditional fishing village with stone houses, and Lynton is a Victorian-Edwardian village, many of its homes turned into seaside villas and hotels.
