Morfa Nefyn is a small village on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in Gwynedd, Wales.

Location and amenities[edit]

Morfa Nefyn lies on the crossroads of the B4417 and B4412 and has been a traditionally undiscovered destination. The village has seen a rise in popularity as house prices in nearby villages on the Llŷn Peninsula such as Abersoch and Llanbedrog have risen rapidly. Many homes are now holiday homes and a complex of holiday flats has recently been built by the entrance to the beach.

The village has two shops, B&Bs and hotels. The neighbouring town of Nefyn has more in the way of shops and services, and Pwllheli is 7 miles (11 km) on the A497 road.

The beach is mainly sand with small amounts of shale. To the west is the small, picturesque fishing hamlet of Porthdinllaen, famous for its pub, the Ty Coch, which is at the top of the beach.

Porthdinllaen is home to the local lifeboat station which houses an inshore lifeboat, as well as a dock for the local Coast Guard.
