"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"


Porthdinllaen (in English sometimes Porth Dinllaen), is a small coastal village in the Dwyfor locality on the Ll?n Peninsula within Gwynedd, Wales, located on a small promontory, and historically in Caernarfonshire. It is near the larger village of Morfa Nefyn.

It has been owned by the National Trust since 1994. With views across to Yr Eifl and Snowdonia, Porthdinllaen, with Nefyn and Morfa Nefyn, form a magnificent two miles (3 km) of sweeping bay. There are only about two dozen buildings at Porthdinllaen, with the Ty Coch pub the centre of the village.

Vehicular access to the village is restricted to residents with a car permit; visitors must walk across the beach from Morfa Nefyn or across the golf course on top of the headland, past the Iron Age hillfort.
