Plas Heli, Pwllheli, Llŷn Peninsula, North Wales

Plas Heli is the Welsh National Sailing Academy and Events Centre, offering a cracking view over Tremadog Bay. You can rock up in your boat, pull it out of the water, shower off the salt and enjoy a lovely locally sourced meal from The Deck Restaurant.


Plas Heli is large and modern in its architecture, and brilliantly situated, literally on the beach. It offers a place where you can shower off, eat some great food, and sail back off into the sunset. It has its own pontoon should you need to tether your vessel, but you’ll need to check if there is space. It has an outdoor area to enjoy fine weather and views, as well as an indoor seating area. All their food is sourced from local producers, and they even have their own beer brewed specially for them at the local Cwrw Llŷn brewery.

There is an interesting feature worth noting: a light installation that relates to an indoor chart, which changes colour according to the wind speed. So if we are in for squally weather keep an eye on this beacon shining purple!
