Morfa Dyffryn is probably the best naturist beach in the UK. It's situated on the Welsh coast between Barmouth and Harlech. It's a two hour drive from Chester and the West Midlands, and a three hour drive from Manchester and Liverpool. The Barmouth Bay beach stretches from Barmouth in the south to Morfa Dyffryn in the north and is about six miles long.
Morfa Dyffryn, the naturist section, is situated in the northern quarter of this beach and is about 1km long. Dyffryn is a beautiful beach, with fine golden sand and clear water. On fine sunny Sundays in the summer up to 500 naturists can be found using it. The main naturist beach is used by singles, couples and families. One of the beauties of Dyffryn is that is it large enough to accommodate all sections of the naturist community.
There are no facilities on the beach but there is a general store at the Dyffryn Seaside Estate. There are no problems with water quality. The water at the naturist section is clear and clean.
Drive north out of Barmouth town along the A496 (the coast road). Almost exactly four miles from central Barmouth along the A496 you'll come across the tiny village of Tal-y-bont. Drive through Tal-y-bont and over a narrow bridge. Just after this bridge you'll come across a road down to the beach. This road, next to a small chapel, is sign posted 'Traeth Beach' ('traeth' is Welsh for beach). Follow this road down to the car park. Morfa Dyffryn, the naturist section, is about a one mile walk north up the beach from the car park. Near to this car park is a second car park at the Dyffryn Seaside Estate. Naturists are better using this second car park as it is closer to the naturist section. NB: be sure not to turn off to the coast before Tal-y-bont. If you take the earlier road down to the beach you'll be faced with a three mile walk to the naturist section - a common mistake by first time visitors.
