Stroll - Morfa Nefyn beach and Porthdinllaen headland circular

This easy 2.5 mile walk has sweeping sea views across to Anglesey. Portdinllaen was once a bustling port, but lost its trade to the likes of Liverpool and Holyhead.

Porthdinllaen headland, once an Iron Age promontory fort
From the high point on the cliff top at Morfa Nefyn, walk down onto the sandy beach at the foot of the Portdinllaen cliffs. Follow the beach round to the headland. At the lifeboat station, take the access road up onto the cliff top (once an Iron Age fort,) and return to Morfa Nefyn.
Historical Iron Age fort information
The date of this walk makes use of the opportunity to dog-walk on this stretch of beach before the May-September high season dog ban takes effect.
