There is no vehicular access to the Watchtower as it stands on the farthest point of Porthdinllaen head, next to the Coastal Path. After leaving your car in Morfa Nefyn at, for example, the (chargeable) National Trust Car Park between Lon Pen Rhos and Lon Golff, you walk uphill to the Golf Club. From there, pass through the kissing-gate and follow the path downhill. Ignore the turning on the right, which drops down to the beach and the famous Ty Coch Inn, head briefly uphill, then move to the left hand side of the headland and follow the Coastal Path down to the Tower which is now clearly visible ahead. The walk from parking to the Tower will take approximately 35 minutes.


Currently 56 NCI stations are operational and manned by over 2600 volunteers keeping watch around the British Isles from Fleetwood in the North West, through Wales, to the South and East of England to Hornsea in the East Riding of Yorkshire. 

NCI watchkeepers provide the eyes and ears along the coast, monitoring radio channels and providing a listening watch in poor visibility. They are trained to deal with emergencies offering a variety of skills and experience, and full training by the NCI ensures that high standards are met.








The words National Coastwatch Institution and Eyes Along the Coast and the NCI logos are Registered Trademarks of NCI.
