An old fishing village near Morfa Nefyn perched on the end of a thin ribbon of land stretching into the Irish Sea. With its clear sheltered waters lapping against stout stone houses, Porthdinllaen really is a jewel. You can watch fishermen bring in the daily catch while relaxing with a drink at the Ty Coch Inn.
