'Captain Jack's' is a fantastic place to 'relax with a glass' and enjoy the views over peaceful Porthmadog harbour, the meandering Glaslyn river, ever changing estuary and the magnificent Snowdonia Mountains.

The cosy sun lounge with corner suite, panoramic windows  and patio door will let you enjoy the view whatever the weather. Situated on the Garth (hill) above Porthmadog it is just a few minutes walk down Grisiau Mawr historic steps to the Quay side pub and restaurants and a few minutes more to the High Street. 15 Minutes walk and you are on the sandy beach at Borth y Gest or drive 8 minutes to the 2 miles long sandy beach of Black Rock Sands.
