Bontnewydd (Welsh, meaning 'New Bridge' in English) is a small village with a population of 1,165 located on the A487 road 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) south of Caernarfon in Gwynedd, Wales, close to the river Gwyrfai, 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) from its outflow into Foryd Bay.

It is served by Bontnewydd railway station, an unstaffed halt on the Welsh Highland Railway. The village has two small supermarkets, an outdoor attraction called Gypsy Wood Park, a pub called The Newborough Arms and one school. Bontnewydd was known as Bodallog prior to the new bridge being built
