Traeth Morfa Bychan
Morfa Bychan has a beach known as Traeth Morfa Bychan which stretches for two miles from the eastern end of the National Trust's Ynys Cyngar on the Afon Glaslyn (River Glaslyn) estuary along Tremadog Bay to Criccieth beach which is accessible at low tide. It is unusual as cars are allowed onto it, although this means that there can be problems with irresponsible drivers. The sea along Traeth Morfa Bychan is shallow, with a gentle gradient making it ideal for swimming and bathing; however, water bikes pose a threat to swimmers and each other. Dogs are allowed on the eastern and western sections of the beach but are banned from the central section. It also has designated bathing and boat-launching areas.
There is also a small beach below the National Trust's Ynys Cyngar, the original point where Madocks was going to site a port before moving it to Porthmadog.
There are a number of caravan parks at Morfa Bychan including Greenacres, Garreg Goch, Cardigan View and Glan Morfa Mawr, the largest of which is Greenacres. There is also a touring and camping site just outside the village by Black Rock Sands.
