The town itself has an excellent choice of good restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs as well as superb shopping and accommodation to suit all comers. Along with the obvious natural attractions of Snowdonia and the National Park visitors can enjoy great days out to nearby Portmeirion or enjoy a rail journey along the legendary Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railways. Then there is the family favourite Black rock Sands in Morfa Bychan, with its lovely sand dunes, multi-coloured-rock pools and caverns.

Porthmadog is especially renowned for its strong sense of national pride and the Welsh language is spoken widely. But dont let that be a worry. The biggest part of Welsh national pride is that they are cultured, friendly and very hospitable towards visitors. Above all else your welcome is guaranteed to be very warm indeed.
