The beach at Morfa Nefyn is just three minutes walk from the cottage. It is mainly sand with small amounts of shale. Walking along the beach to the west is the small, picturesque fishing hamlet of Porthdinllaen, famous for its pub, the Ty Coch, which lies at the top of the beach.
Morfa Nefyn Golf Club (www.nefyn-golf-club.co.uk) used to be described as one of Wales’ ‘best kept secrets’, but today the secret is out and visitors from all over the world make the trip to this spectacular piece of coastline known as the Llŷn Peninsula to experience not only the challenge of the golf course, but also the breathtaking scenery and tranquillity of its secluded location.

The North Wales region
Whether you are planning an activity holiday, a relaxing week on the coast or fun for all the family - it's all on offer in this beautiful part of Wales.
There are historic towns, seaside resorts, castles, narrow gauge railways, museums, leisure facilities - a whole host of places to visit and things to do for all the family, available all year round.
When Spring beckons, treat yourself to a short break, or gaze at the wonders of the changing colours in Autumn. This part of Wales has something for all the family - cycling for all ages on designated cycle routes, picturesque walks, picnic areas, sailing on lakes, canoeing on rivers, as well as exploring the forests and waterfalls.
Morfa Nefyn is situated midway along the north coast of the Lleyn Peninsula. With its long sheltered sandy beach, Porth Dinllaen, there is an almost perfect semi circle with headlands at either end and backed by low cliffs. The beach offers safe bathing, boating and water sports and excellent walks across the beach to the pretty village of Porthdinllaen.
Archaeologists have dated the remains of Trwyn Dinllaen Iron Age Hill Fort, on the headland to the west, at around 100BC, Morfa Nefyn’s earliest known settlers. A walk along the headland today shows little evidence of their existence, (the Iron Age Fort is obscured by the modern Nefyn Golf Course), but is compensated for by the magnificent views across the bay and towards the mountains of Yr Eifl. The Iron Age settlers certainly knew how to choose their spot!
Golfing, walking, bathing, touring, visiting castles, or riding on steam trains - all are withing a short distance of Morfa Nefyn as well as market day in Pwllheli and plenty of opportunity to sample the local cuisine!.
