A view of the bay Porthor, Llyn Peninsula, Wales

Surfing, Porthor 

The break here can be ideal for surfing and bodyboarding in the right conditions. The largest swells usually occur at Porth Neigwl (or Hells Mouth) but when Porth Neigwl is washed out with onshore winds, Porthor can provide some tantalising, sheltered surf. For the lucky few, you’ll find tubular, barrelling waves, great for bodyboarding but care must be taken as there are one or two rocks around under the water.

Kayaking, Craflwyn and Beddgelert 

At a tough Grade 5, the Aberglaslyn Gorge is one for the experts and draws experienced paddlers when the levels are right. Novices can try their hand on the flat water of Llyn Gwynant and progress to the gentle river waters between the lake and Llyn Dinas. From there to Beddgelert, the river is graded 2 and 3.
