Looking down on Dinas Dinlle from it's hill fort.

 Dinas Dinlle lies to the northern extremity of Llyn and at mid to low tide has a large sandy beach which extends south from the mouth of the Menai Straits. The small village has a cafe, pub, beach shop and plenty of parking along the sea front.

Views from Dinas Dinlle range from the spectacular hills of Llyn, including Yr Eifl around Caernarfon Bay to Ynys Llanddwyn on the south-western corner of Anglesey with Holyhead Mountain beyond.

From the car park in the village you have choice: head up to the small hill fort (which rises to about 100ft) or walk along the long promenade. The hill is quite steep if you choose to climb it, though the promenade has a long concrete path, or alternatively, you can walk along the beach. There is no set distance to walk. If you walk along the beach towards the north you will come to the mouth of the Menai Straits and care should be taken as the tide can cut people off and there are very strong currents so be careful.
