Pwllheli is the unofficial capital of The Llyn Peninsula, in Northwest Wales much of which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty making Pwllheli an ideal base to explore the area, as well as nearby Snowdonia, Anglesey and the western coast.
Pwllheli is a busy market town with a weekly market where you're bound to find a good bargain! Also in the seaside town centre you will find many shops, selling everything you need for your holiday.
The impressive marina is now one of the best in Wales, with over 400 boats and access 24 hours a day. Pwllheli also has two beaches. South Beach, which is mainly shingle, is a Blue Flag beach and has clean sands and waters. It stretches from Gimblet Rock, across the promenade, and around towards Llanbedrog. Glan-y-mor is the other beach is located at the near to the marina.
Much of the surrounding area is rolling countryside, rising up to the occasional extinct volcanic peak. The highest of which is Yr Eifl, on the north coast of Llyn. There are also other hills on Llyn, all worth a climb so the area is a hot spot for keen climbers and walkers. On a clear day, Snowdonia, Cardigan Bay and Anglesey can all be seen from the summits.
