Morfa Nefyn is a small village located on the northern coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in the Welsh county of Gwynedd. Historically, it is part of Caernarfonshire.

Location and amenities

It lies on the crossroads of the B4417 (Nefyn - Aberdaron) and B4412 and has been a traditionally undiscovered destination. More recently, 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 a couple of shops, B&Bs and hotels. The neighbouring town of Nefyn has more in the way of shops and services, but for a more comprehensive range, Pwllheli is only 7 miles and about 10 minutes down the A497 road.

The beach at Morfa Nefyn is mainly sand with small amounts of shale. 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.

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