Porth Towyn is near Tudweiliog, which lies on the Aberdaron - Nefyn road about a mile inland. The beach at Porth Towyn is very sandy, with the odd rock towards each end of the beach. The sand on this beach also "squeaks" when you tread on it, rather like it's more famous neighbour. As with Traeth Penllech, surfers can be accommodated on this beach if the conditions are right. There is a car park in a field on the opposite side of the road at the furthest end of the farm from the gate which leads you over the field to the beach. There are many small coves to the right was you walk across the field, accessed down the steep grassy slopes from the coastal path.
