Holiday Travel Guide

Nefyn Beach is a stunning unspoilt beach on the north coast of the Llyn Peninsula, Wales, perfect for traditional seaside holidays. With its long stretch of sand, small collection of picturesque white cottages and clean sea, it is ideal for families to spend a day with the children. The beach is also a magnet for people looking to do a spot of sea kayaking and canoeing, and occasionally the waves even become large enough for surfers to enjoy.

Nefyn Beach was once a renowned medieval borough and the place chosen by King Edward I of England to hold a tournament celebrating his conquest of Wales in 1284. Nefyn was also a resting place for pilgrims heading to Enys Enlli at the top of the peninsula. The old church has since been converted into Llyn Maritime Museum, popular with tourists. The museum holds a unique collection of more than 400 artefacts associated with the maritime heritage of the area.

The Llyn Coastal Path winds its way around and behind the beach, offering unrivalled views of the clear blue waters of Nefyn Beach. You can follow the path through Nefyn Village to Porth Dinllaen, a small fishing village and port to the south, and then onto Bardsley Island, at the southern tip of the peninsula. The island has long been an important religious site after a monastery was built there in 516 and was a major pilgrims’ destination in medieval times, though now it is known for its rugged scenery and wildlife.

"We took a 4 x4 + Horse trailer, there was plenty of room to park. If we could not have parked in carpark we were offered additional parking on a grass field within the Hotel grounds. Limited staff due to Colvid, but helped with all our requests."
