About Porth Dinllaen

Porth Dinllaen is a hamlet situated on the western end of the beaches of Nefyn. Beautiful views, a sandy beach and the popular beach front pub - the Ty Coch Inn - make this a pleasant place to visit.

Porth Dinllaen is probably the best harbour along the north coast for protection from the sea. It is almost a natural harbour with just a small wall of boulders protecting the beach where there are houses at the top of the sand.

The headland is quite rocky and care should be taken to stay clear of rocks that are submerged at high tide. There is a private access to the village, however, the nearest public access to the shore is at Morfa Nefyn across the bay, marked by white houses at the foot of the cliffs.
