The Welsh town of Pwllheli is located on the Llyn Peninsula. This town is the main market town of the peninsula and is a small community with only around 4,000 residents the majority of which are Welsh speaking. The town began its life around the fishing, granite, and shipbuilding industries; it became a market town in the mid 14th century.
The market is still a major attraction for the town. Held every Wednesday, residents and visitors alike can enjoy finding just the right item in the market place. Whether it is local produce or local goods, the market is still and important part of the life and industry of Pwllheli.
Interested in golf then the local golf club is where you should head. The Clwb Golff Pwllheli is a 69 par course that might seem easy to some visitors, or at first glance at least. This course is shorter than most at only 6100 yards but there are no par 5 holes and many of the par 4 holes face the south and westerly winds making it more challenging that it would appear.
Pwllheli is on the coast, meaning the first stop for many visitors is one of the two beaches. Both of the beaches in Pwllheli are Blue Flag beaches meaning they have met the highest standards for cleanliness. These awards are not given out lightly and you can rest assured that your family is playing on the cleanest sands and in the cleanest waters.
Since the town is known for its fishing industry it would stand to reason another popular stop is the marina. You can watch the boats going in or out. You can hire a boat to take you fishing. Whatever your water adventure this is a great way to start it.
Families can also enjoy the Glasfryn Parc. This family outing has fishing, go karting, bowling and more. Families can enjoy a wonderful day of just playing and enjoying a wide variety of sports and other activities. You don't have to worry about leaving the park to find something tasty to eat either. The Parc has some delicious dining areas, both inside and out, for you to enjoy.
Speaking of gastric fair, Pwllheli is home to the Plas Bodegroes. This famous restaurant has been in the area for over twenty years. Housed in a Georgian country house it is the only 5-star rated restaurant in Wales. It is a tasty treat for visitors to enjoy.
