Nefyn is a small seaside resort on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd, North Wales. Nefyn is best known for it's beautiful unspoilt seafront, clean sea and sandy beaches, but in days gone by it was renowned as the medieval borough chosen by King Edward 1 of England to host a tournament to celebrate his conquest of Wales in 1284. To this day, there is an area on the outskirts of the town known as Cae Iorwerth (Edward's Field).
In the 21st century Nefyn is ideally placed to capitalise on the resurgence in the traditional seaside holidays in the UK and Wales, and is especially popular with those seeking environmentally friendly holidays. But the people of Nefyn can not rest on their laurels and they need to stay on their guard as the potential influx of power boats and noisy jet skies could cause more damage to the town and it's environment than a medieval English King and all his armies!
