Dinas Dinlle is a small settlement in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, with a large sand and pebble beach with vast areas of sand from mid-tide level. The foreshore consists of natural pebble banks. The popular beach offers views towards the Llŷn Peninsula (Penrhyn Llŷn) and towards Ynys Llanddwyn (Llanddwyn Island) on Anglesey. The area is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The cliff above the beach is known as Boncan Dinas and is occupied by an Iron Age hill fort, Dinas Dinlle. This fort has been eroded by the sea, such that only a double semi-circular rampart remains. Finds of Roman pottery indicate a reoccupation in the 2nd or 3rd centuries.

A small airport, Caernarfon airport, is nearby. During the Second World War this was an RAF base but now it is mainly used for flying lessons and pleasure flights. A caravan park is located nearby.
