With two Blue Flag sandy beaches, a marina, a market, shops restaurants and cinemas and places of historical interest, Pwllheli is perfect for a relaxing and exciting family break in the Gwynedd County of Wales, and there is always something to see or do to keep adults and children happy in this picturesque settlement and one of the jewels of north-west Wales.


What Pwllheli, Gwynedd offers for Self-Catering Holidays

This vibrant seaside resort marks the entrance to the Llyn Peninsula, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and there is plenty to see, including the Pwllheli harbour. This idyllic harbour has an interesting history dating back hundreds of years to when pirates and smugglers would roam the area, and wines used to be imported through this exact harbour. Today it is the centre of tourism and social activity with beautiful bars, restaurants and cafes lining the waterfront, where you can sit and sip an ice-cold drink under the sun whilst gazing at the boats drifting by.

Another great thing to see in Pwllheli is its fantastic open-air market which is held in the town square, Y Maes, every Wednesdays and Sundays during the summer. Selling anything from local handicrafts and souvenirs to food and drink, the market is a must-see. Within the town itself there are plenty of individual boutiques dotted along the narrow, quirky streets, and there are plenty of traditional pubs, cafes, fish and chip places and mini-markets to stock up on your own food and snacks.

The incredible south facing beaches at Pwllheli are an obvious main draw to the area, especially as two of them have been classified as European Blue Flag beaches due to their cleanliness and pure beauty.  Glan y Mor beach is a great one to visit due to its sands and its proximity to the marina, and if you have children, they will enjoy building sand candles or splashing about in the calm seas. There are also lots of water sports activities that you can participate in, such as sailing and diving.

Pwllheli is one of the most beautiful towns on the Llyn Peninsula and makes for a fantastic holiday, especially for families. The beaches, friendly people and distinctly Welsh feel about the settlement make Pwllheli a great choice for an authentic Welsh holiday.

Book a Pwllheli cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Gwynedd on holiday.
