Dyffryn Ardudwy Cottages
Situated on the A496 coastal road between Harlech and Barmouth, the village has a population of around 1,500. Dyffryn Beach (Llanendwyn) is a long sandy beach backed by an extensive sand dune system between Shell Island and the village. A footpath from a caravan site leads north behind the dune system to Shell Island and the beach beyond.
The dunes form the Morfa Dyffryn National Nature Reserve which stretches for about 4½ miles along the coast of Cardigan Bay; Morfa Dyffryn's dunes are dynamic and are constantly changing. Cadw, the Welsh Government's historic environment service, maintains the Dyffryn Ardudwy Burial Chamber, a Neolithic tomb comprising two chambers of different phases, originally covered by a stone cairn.
