- Porth Dinllaen beach is a sandy, gently shelving beach that has rock pools. Porth Dinllaen is a small harbour village situated on the Llyn peninsula in Gwynedd that due to the lack of modern development is often used in films. You also have another small beach to the north by the Porth Dinllaen lifeboat station. Owned by the National Trust you can’t take a car into the village. You will need to go to Morfa Nefyn and then follow the signs to the National Trust car park. There are steps down to the beach from where you can cross the sands to PorthDinllaen. Facilities include pub, car park a short walk away and harbour.
- Penllech beach is an unspoilt wide sandy beach and at high tide it all but disappears whilst at low tide you have rock pools to explore. The beach is unspoilt and not very busy in part due to the lack of facilities, and can be popular with surfers when conditions are right. You have a choice of parking either set back from the middle of the beach and a short walk to the sea or to head for Porth Colman (has a slipway) and walk along the coast back to the beach. You can click street view on our interactive map and explore the options. Be careful as the tide comes in and as the beach disappears you can get cut-off.
