Morfa Dyffryn Naturist beach, sometimes Morfa Dyffryn Nudist Beach, lies on the coast of Cardigan Bay, close to the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy in the county of Gwynedd. The beach lies in the middle of a 13 mile stretch of glorious coastline between Harlech and Barmouth, in Gwynedd, West Wales.
Morfa Dyffryn beach is one of the best beaches in Wales, never mind best naturist beach.
The beach faces the clear waters of the Irish Sea and is a long sandy
beach with a large National Nature Reserve within the widespread sand
dunes. Morfa Dyffryn beach has been graded as having the highest quality
water (2010). Activities on the beach include swimming and walking.
Passing through the dunes, a footpath leads to Shell Island and further
beaches where the shoreline is a good location for bird spotting, of
the feathered kind, especially in the winter months.
Dyffryn has a large number of sand dunes and has been popular with
naturists, or nudists, for many years and in 2000 the local authority
took a decision to erect notices designating a section of the beach for
naturist use. On sunny summer days up to 500 naturists can be found
using Morfa Dyffryn beach.
