Compared with the Great Orme, the Little Orme (you see it on the picture), has seen relatively little development although there was significant limestone quarrying on the eastern side until recently.

The Little Orme presents excellent opportunities for walking with more gorgeous views and a world of natural wonder, and its cliffs are a major challenge to experienced climbers.
