The Little Orme is a limestone headland east of Llandudno.

It is less developed than its bigger and more famous neighbour, the Great Orme, which makes it great for exploring and a haven for wildlife.

It is readily accessible on foot from Llandudno promenade or by bike (NCN route 5).

The North Wales Wildlife Trust manages 5 hectares of the Little Orme, Rhiwledyn nature reserve. Distinctive plants of limestone grassland can be found here, such as Hoary rockrose and Dropwort, and the areas of scrub are ideal for many nesting bird species.

You may also be lucky enough to see Fulmars on the rocky cliffs, and Cormorants collecting nesting material in the spring.

Further exploration of the Penrhyn Bay (eastern) side of the Little Orme may reward visitors with views of Atlantic Grey seals in Angel Bay.

There are also interpretation panels detailing the history of quarrying in the area.
