Porth Dinllaen Beach

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.
