Pwllheli is the traditional market-town of the beautiful Lleyn Peninsula or in Welsh, Pen Llyn). The town is on the coast, with two sandybeaches(though the better beaches lie further down the lleyn, for example; Quarry a busy sandy beach, Hell's Mouth (Porth Neigwl in Welsh) a famous surfing beach and remote tranquil beaches like Porth Ysgo which has a 20' waterfall), a marina host to many Sailing regattas and as the market town has shops and cafés.

To find out more look at these sites: (on the whole of the lleyn) (also on the Lleyn) (The llanbedrog gallery website, this has a history of Pwllheli if you follow the "history link.") (more commercial) (this is the mariner site, has useful tide times and weather.) (a biased account by Gwynedd council of Pwllheli and surrounding area)
