Gwynedd is a county in Wales, home to Snowdonia National Park and the beautiful Llyn Peninsula. The Llyn Peninsula is a glorious stretch of Welsh coastline, a protected "Area of Outstanding Beauty", and has several towns and villages along the coastal path that are well worth a visit. Abersoch, the popular and fashionable seaside resort and watersports hub has lots going on; Aberdaron and Llambedrog are both charming fishing villages, the latter with a superb beach. If you can, make a stop off at Porthdinllaen, a picturesque hamlet owned by the National Trust; the beach and village are accessed on foot only. The "capital" of the Llyn coastline, Pwlheli (don't try pronouncing that with a mouthful of Welsh cakes), is a bustling seaside town with shops, a beachfront and a fantastic marina from which you you can take boat trips out to see dolphins, seals and other wildlife. Or keep the kids entertained (and exhausted) at Glasfryn Parc, a huge activity centre which has absolutely bags of different things to try, ranging from go-karting to archery.
