Situated on the Glaslyn Estuary at the edge of the Snowdonia National Park and the Llyn Peninsula, Porthmadog is the gateway to this most incredible and beautiful part of the British Isles. The town’s stunning setting and proud heritage make it the ideal place from which to discover the 840 miles of spectacular surrounding wilderness with its famous purple-capped mountains and acres of breathtaking forest. Overlooked by famous Moel y Gest and nestling on the banks of the wonderful Glaslyn Estuary, Porthmadog is a favourite with visitors looking for adventure, its rich maritime history adding an extra touch of magic to this truly historic landmark.
As you would expect of such a famous port the marina is central to the town and has remained a bustling lively hub of activity. A genuinely attractive harbour, Porthmadog attracts yachtsmen and pleasure boaters from all corners of Europe keen to enjoy the wonderful coastline and explore the surrounding countryside. With plentiful berths, marine services and a lively atmosphere it is amongst the most popular mooring areas in Wales.
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 it’s strong sense of national pride and the Welsh language is spoken widely. But don’t 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.
