This Dolphin jetty, was the only one of its kind on Llyn, ships would be unloaded, coal mostly, and a cable car arrangement would carry the goods over the beach, to the cliff top. It was a perfect solution, for discharging vessel on a shallow beach. Porthdinllaen is across the bay behind the jetty.
