Best Beach Bar in the World | Ty – Coch InnPublished on 15 Apr 2016 by Gwion Llwyd
Some of the best places to visit are those off the beaten track and The Ty-Coch Inn in the tiny fishing village of Porthdinllaen on the Llyn Peninsula is no exception. To get there you either have to arrive by water on boat or jet ski or walk for 20 minutes down from the golf course or across from Nefyn beach….is it the best beach bar in the world?
When you get to Porthdinllaen you know you are somewhere special; the village is set in a hidden cove on the beach and the Ty Coch Inn is at the heart of it all. The pub is uber relaxed and you almost feel overdressed by even wearing shoes. It’s a popular place during the summer and they cater for that; lots of outside table space and pergolas and of course the famous wall on which you can sit and enjoy the view.
The food is good pub old food with the only notable missing element….. chips. They pride themselves on not offering them and as they have the monopoly on the food offering, they can set the rules. But don’t be put off, there is plenty to choose from.
It’s been listed in the top 10 best beach bars in the world and when you get there, you can understand why. It has its own special charm and those ‘best places’ are not always the most trendy or expensive; they are those that offer something different that will give you memories for years to come and the Ty Coch Inn definitely ticks that box.
Demi Moore filmed ‘Half Light’ here and the Cameron’s were spotted sitting on the wall enjoying a cheeky pint! They also have music nights throughout the year and the odd harpist playing on the patio outside in the sun; so if your in the area, you should definitely make the trip to the Ty Coch Inn – it won’t disappoint and you will certainly enjoy your time there.
