Pwllheli is the unofficial capital of the Lleyn Peninsula, with two beaches and an attractive seafront promenade.
South Beach is a shingle beach that stretches from Gimblet Rock along the promenade and around towards Llanbedrog.
Glan-y-Mor is located at the back of the marina, starting off a little muddy around the harbour, but soon becoming sandy and running for three miles all the way to the Penychain headland.
