Being lazy we just had lunch and mooched about this lovely harbour. Would like to see a few more interpretive boards filling us in on the history of the place.

Nestling into a narrow cove is the old harbour of Porthgain. From here it is a short walk along dramatic cliff tops to the old quarry which the harbour was built to service. Old workings abound but all you will see in the harbour is...More

Either walk to it (and enjoy the sloop) or from it (to Trefin & enjoy the ship). Nice little harbour on the coast path, well worth a visit

Walked from the harbour to the blue lagoon. Easy walk on well defined path. Returned to have lunch at the Shed, dog friendly.

It's industrial past sticks out like a scar on the landscape. Saying that there is a lot of history here and worth learning about. Shame there is no visitors centre or guided walks. Has potential to be developed into a more worthwhile and informative experience...More

Lovely views and a few little shops and a great place that does fish. We were Recommended the shed by a local waitress and we were not disappointed the harbour was a bonus

We visited off season and i can imagine it gets very busy in the summer months. There seemed to be plenty of parking. The harbour is very attractive and full of historical interest. Little shops, a beautiful gallery, two restaurants, walks along the coast path...More

A great little harbour with lots of history. It is unbelievable looking to now to imagine what went on here in the not so distant past. Very picturesque and well worth a visit.
