Welcome to Morfa Nefyn
The diminutive village of Morfa Nefyn sits above a pretty crescent of sand at Porth Dinllaen. It's hard to believe that this was once a busy cargo, shipbuilding and herring port, the only safe haven on the peninsula's north coast. Indeed, it was eyed up by slate magnate William Madocks as a possible home for ferries to Ireland, but in 1839 the House of Commons gave that job to Holyhead. Today one of its chief draws is the Nefyn & District Golf Club, which maintains a picturesque course on a headland jutting into the Irish Sea.
