A grey day for us today but a little less windy and chilly and no rain – bonus! We have big plans for the day and our first port of call was the little village of Trefor, with a large (free) car park down by the water, about half a mile from the village.
A mostly stony beach, though the tide was well in and it looked as though there had been some recent storm damage to the bank with quite a few uprooted trees.
Though not the most attractive beach it had a lovely remote feel and we enjoyed our walk along the narrow shoreline and out onto the harbour wall.
A very serene scene across the bay from the end of the harbour wall!
A few miles up the road we arrived and parked in the village of Nefyn and walked down the steep and windy hill down to the beach – around the last bend and wow – look at this
As the tide was on it’s way out, more and more sand is revealed.
The beach to the right was empty so Poppydog was happy to run free (still chasing stones) as we walked along to the far end.
Around the headland to the west a further stretch of wonderful beaches, though rather than walk along the coastal path we chose to drive and park up at the furthest point at Morfa Nefyn and walk from there.
Firstly we walked out onto the headland, with breathtaking views all around.
Now I am not a golfer but this course looked stunning and not very forgiving!
Also out on the headland was the Coastguard Lookout and the Lifeboat Station, sitting just around the corner (you can just see the slip on the right) from this lovely little sandy beach.
Just beyond the the lifeboat station a first glimpse down on Porthdinllaen a tiny little hamlet down on the beach – how magical!
How is this for a view? Pub on the beach!
The beach was lovely and sandy, with a beautiful calm bay.
Round a rocky outcrop and you’re on Morfa Nefyn beach another long stretch of sand.
We walked part way along the beach before heading back into the village to the car.
I think Porthdinllaen will have to go on my ‘Holiday Spot’ list.
Two thoughts of the day:
Can you imagine how these beaches would look in the sunshine?
Long but lovely day – now to rest!
