The village is dominated by the harbour where in the summer there are a number of boats moored. Away from the harbour there are a several sheltered coves with sandy beaches where it is ideal for children to play in the pools which abound on the banks at low tide.
Porthmadog used to be the centre of the Welsh slate industry. Slate paid for the causeway, called the Cob, which carries the road into Porthmadog across the Glaslyn Estuary and the Ffestiniog Railway, which is now one of the biggest holiday attractions in Wales, chugging for 22 kilometers (13.5 miles) through beautiful coastal and mountain scenery to Blaneau Ffestiniog. Another much shorter stretch of railway is the Welsh Highland Line, which is in the process of being restored and eventually will run from Porthmadog to Caernarvon.
On the harbour, a former slate storage shed now houses the Maritime Museum showing the life and history of the area.
Across the estuary is Portmeirion which is an Italianate village created by the late Cluff Williams Ellis, the village is well worth visiting.
