Dinas Dinlle is famous for its big skies, amazing sunsets, stunning scenery and clean, safe beaches. It is situated next to the RSPB Nature Reserve and is the start of the Lleyn Peninsular Coastal Path. To the north of Dinas Dinlle, the coastal footpath leads you to the 18th century Fort Belan. It takes you through the sand dunes which is an area of special scientific interest (SSSI) with an abundance of flora and wildlife and part of 'Y Foryd' nature reserve, home to numerous birds. Large flocks of over 5,000 widgeon can be seen in the saltmarsh to the south of the bay, along with a number of shell ducks, oyster catchers, curlews and lapwing, and other species in smaller numbers such as the ringed plover, golden plover, little egret, redshank and greenshank.
The Beach House Located next to the award winning blue flag beach, the farmhouse has an open plan design allowing plenty of room to relax around the fire or dine around the large beech wood dining table. Visitors can enjoy preparing meals in the spacious and fully equipped kitchen with dual fuel cooking range (gas and electric). The property also benefits from underfloor heating.
The master bedroom benefits from a kingsize sleigh bed and large ensuite bathroom. There is also a double room both allow visitors to wake up with views across the spectacular Caernarfon Bay, Anglesey and the Lleyn peninsular.

The North Wales region
The sought after award winning blue flag beach situated 150 metres away makes it an ideal place for swimming, wind surfing, canoeing and fishing.
Situated in a rural, seaside hamlet with views towards Snowdonia to the East, Y Eifl Mountain Range to the West with distant sea views of Angelsey and Southstack to the North.
A short walk along the coastal path will lead you to the village where you will find a shop where you can buy basics, an indian restaurant, fish & chip shops and a cafe. There is also a childrens playground and toilet facilities.
To the west of the property is the seemingly endless pebble and sand blue flag beach which is popular with watersports enthusiasts and holidaymakers alike. Swimming, wind-surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking and sailing can all be practised here in seas of high water quality.
Sea anglers can also try their luck on what is commonly thought of as the best bass surf beach in Wales. Low water allows fishermen to dig lugworms in the sand opposite the village or rummage for peeler crabs in the estuary close to the Menai Straits and only a short car journey away.
The nearby estuarine nature reserve at Y Foryd is a birdwatchers paradise and makes this stretch of coastline particularly attractive. Visitors can either walk to bird hides where they can spot protected species such as Little Egrets, Greenshanks, Lapwings and Golden Plovers or travel the short car journey along the estuary to Caernarfon Castle itself.
There is also a site of Special Scientific Interest less than 880m down the coast boasting fantastic sand dunes, flora and wildlife.
Take a walk a mile in the other direction towards Dinas Dinlle where you will find the Iron Age Fort which is now owned and maintained by the National Trust.
In less than a 15 minute drive you will find yourself in the Snowdonia National Park at Nantelle which is approximately 7 miles away. Here you will find the famous Nantelle Ridge with spectacular walks and stunning views.
