Porth Dinllaen on Lleyn is a sheltered beach break that does not work very often. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Ideal winds are from the southeast with some shelter here from west winds. Most of the surf comes fis in the form of windswells and the ideal wave direction is from the southwest. Waves at the beach break both left and right. Best around high tide when the tide is falling. Unlikely to be too crowded, even when the surf is up.
