The UK pub on a beach that's been labelled the ‘best in the country' | The Sun

A PUB situated on a beach in the UK has been declared of the 10 best in the world – and could possibly be the best boozer in the country.

Few things can beat a cold drink on the beach on a warm summer's day – and fortunately there's a place where you can combine all three.

The Ty Coch Inn in the village of Porthdinllaen near Morfa Nefyn, Gwynedd, Wales has been voted one of the ten best beach bars on the planet.

It finds itself among other exotic establishments in places like Jamaica, Florida and Australia, according to travel experts Cheap Flights.

They say that the bar, which can be found on the north coast of the Lleyn peninsular, "has a prime location on the sweeping Welsh seaside, with views across to Yr Eifl and Snowdonia".

The pub is described as a "traditional tavern with real ale and pub food, plus nautical decor and sea views" according to Abersoch Life, who say it could be the best pub in Wales.

However, it's not as easy to reach if you're a tourist as it is for a local.

Only residents have vehicle access to the bar, so holidaymakershave to walk across the beach from Morfa Nefyn, or stroll across the golf course on top of the headland.

Once there, they can, "relax, unwind, pull up a pew, grab a pint, breathe in the sea air and watch the waves come in".

From more than 900 reviews on TripAdvisor, the bar has an overall rating of 4/5, with its atmosphere receiving a lot of praise.

One person said: "Top Pub in a top location.

"The friendliness of the staff, almost perfect location and the good choice of cider, lager and beer make this an excellent bar."

Another wrote: "Location location location! It couldn’t be better. Right on the beach with beautiful views. Plenty of outside and inside seating."

A third added: "Amazing location, great food and the beer was spot on too!"

The pub isn't the only place in Gwynedd that's impressed tourists, with another being compared to the Italian Riviera.

Portmeirion village in Gwynedd was built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975.

Despite denying claims he based the village of Portofino, Portmeirion has al-fresco dining areas, acres of gardens and multi-coloured buildings a-plenty, all of which resemble the popular fishing port.

Once inside the village gates, visitors can also enjoy an Italian gelato at Angel Ices or opt for a spot of afternoon tea at The Hotel Portmeirion.

For amazing views of the Dwyryd Estuary, head to the Clifftop Rotunda where seasonal exhibitions can also be found.
