Morfa Dyffryn Beach



Morfa Dyffryn beach is part of a long sandy stretch of beach north of Barmouth and south of Harlech, and is also known as Benar Beach.

The beach is several kilometres long and you have a 1 kilometre length officially naturist section clearly marked.

This is a large, flat, sandy beach backed by dunes that are part of the Morfa Dyffryn National Nature Reserve. Although popular with nudists from all over the world, the size of this beach means visitors can find plenty of space and privacy.
