Transport

A local bus service, (provided by Nefyn Coaches), provides a connection every one and two hours (7am, 8am and 9am for 1 hour buses, and every 2 hours from 9am onwards) between Tudweiliog and Pwllheli, the nearest market town, approximately 10 miles (16 km) away. The bus stops at other villages on the way, including Nefyn,[8] Dinas,[8] Trefor[8] and Pencaenewydd, depending on which bus is taken.

The B4417 goes through the village the road and joining side-roads gives access to nearby villages such as Morfa Nefyn and Nefyn only a 7 and 10 minutes drive away.

The B4413 also provides a connection to Botwnnog which houses the nearest high school ('Ysgol Botwnnog') amongst other amenities. The B4413 also links up to the A499 which provides the connection to the nearest town, Pwllheli where the nearest railway station is situated, along with many other larger stores such as an Iceland (supermarket), which help to provide the locals with more than their local store can provide. Botwnnog is approximately 11 minutes away, whilst Pwllheli is 20 minutes away when taking the route via the A497, as it is closer to 30 when taking the B-road through Botwnnog.
