The fishing village of Porthdinllaen in Wales

It is not a secret that I was in love with Wales, and we were lucky to have sunshine and warm days during our holiday there.

What I never thought was that I would spend a hot day at the beach drinking cold beer, swimming and enjoying the sunshine. But that is precisely what happened when we went to the gorgeous Porthdinllaen in Wales.

Porthdinllaen, Wales

Located in the Llŷn Peninsula, Porthdinllaen is an old fishing village and sandy beach overlooking a bay with one of Wales’s most extensive seagrass meadows.

The small village is owned by the National Trust and runs along the beachfront with magnificent mountain views, sheltered waters, fine sandy beaches, attractive rock pools, and a chance to watch boats bobbing in the water.

The car-free village, turquoise sea, and sandy beach delight families, and it is a spectacular place to enjoy a day on the coast (if you are lucky to get good weather in Wales).

One of the best spots to take in the setting is from the Ty Coch Inn (“Red House”) right on the waterside. The Inn has a prime location on the vast Welsh seaside, with views across Yr Eifl and Snowdonia.
