The event was organised the National Trust as part of the Llyn Coastal Festival and included seafood cookery demonstrations from local cooks Mary White, Selective Seafoods, Heather Jones, Gegin Grug, Nick Grimes and Russel Smith from the Woodlands Hall Hotel and Mel Thomas, Hafan Hire.
Other activities included beach games, free canoeing trips with Llyn Adventures, face painting and a fascinating exhibition about the area's rich seafaring history, provided by the Nefyn Maritime Museum.
I've visited Porthdinllaen hundreds of times over the years, but I don't think I've ever seen it so full of life. After catching up with colleagues, family and friends - and sampling some of the cook's dishes - I paddled out to see the new Porthdinllaen Lifeboat, the John D. Spicer, on her mooring out in the bay, before heading for home.
Below are some photos of the event, and a video in Welsh of Coastal Ranger, Laura Jones.
