Dinas Dinlle Beach

The beach at Dinas Dinlle is a sizable stretch with pebbles at the top and sand at the lower levels making it perfect conditions to take part in 'forces-of-nature' sports like kiting and windsurfing. The beach is backed by several cafes and caravan sites and there are car parks all along the beach. From here Caernarfon Bay opens out before you with the north coast of Llyn to the left and the west coast of Anglesey and Holyhead Mountain to the right.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
