In addition to this the Llŷn is protected for it’s wealth of values with two other legislation, Landscape Conservation Area and Environmentally Sensitive Area. On the Llŷn you will find over 20 Sites of Special Scientific Interest, a RAMSAR site which is a site of European Importance.

You will find Nature Reserves and important breading areas for rear birds such as the Chough as well as migrating birds. There are over 300 Listed Buildings and over 50 sites of historical interest in the area. Among them the remains of a Roman Axe Factory.
