A rugged coast, snow-capped mountains and shimmering lakes can all be enjoyed on self-catering holidays in Nefyn. The sleepy fishing village of Nefyn lies on the spectacular Llŷn Peninsula. Its beach is a spectacular crescent of sand, facing into the Irish Sea. With two miles of unspoiled shore, it is a popular spot for surfing, windsurfing and fishing. The views from the beach are spectacular, with fishing boats bobbing in a sheltered harbour, against a backdrop of distant mountains. To the west, past the neigbouring village of Morfa Nefyn, the TY Coch Inn perches on a jagged headland, earning it a place in the Top 10 Beach Bars in the World. Most holiday cottages in Nefyn are located in the narrow streets behind the beach, where a variety of family-run businesses can be found.
