The wild park area leading to Angel Bay is known as the Rhiwledyn nature reserve. It is limestone grassland, with bushes and small trees. A popular place for short walks and for walking dogs. A 10 minute stroll takes you to Angel Bay which is a small cove at the base of the Little Orme, Penrhyn Bay. The small cove is home to a colony of seals. up to 200 have been seen in the autumn months. You can not climb down as the seals and pups need to be protected but you can view then from the top of the cliff. Take binoculars. The largest numbers of seals are visible on the beach during the breeding season between September- December.

The cliffs of the Little Orme are home to kittiwakes, razorbills, guillemots , cormorants and gulls. The bushes are home to small birds and butterflies.

This is a lovely area for an easy walk and a coffee on a bench overlooking the sea and cliffs.. More energetic walkers can climb the steeper slopes onto the Little Orme itself.
