Area information


Abersoch is situated on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales and is a small seaside village resort.  The village's popularity is due to its idyllic position with great beaches, a pleasant climate and beautiful scenery.  The area offers a wide range of sporting and leisure activities and the village itself has a good selection of small shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. 

Abersoch is the sort of place that people return to year after year, with more and more people visiting Abersoch "out of season" as it has so much more to offer than just being a summer location.

Reaching out from the mountains of Snowdonia towards the Irish Sea, the Llyn Peninsula is a “hidden gem”.  A truly beautiful, scenic area of Wales where coast and countryside come together. The Llyn Peninsula is one of the most scenic parts of Wales and arguably the prettiest too.  Designated as an "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty" and Heritage Coast, it is an ideal area for many outdoor activities with an array of cliff top pathways and the newly opened Llyn coastal pathway (see for more details).

For surfing enthusiasts, venture down to Porth Neigwl (Hells Mouth), Porth Ceiriad or Porth Oer (Whistling Sands).  There are also many fine sandy beaches offering various water sports and boating to suit all tastes, with the yachting marina at Pwllheli and the South Caernarvonshire Yacht Club on the headland at Abersoch.

Sea fishing is available from the beaches and coves, with daily trips, in season, from Pwllheli Marina and Abersoch out to th deep waters of Cardigan Bay.

There are three challenging golf courses at Abersoch, Nefyn and Pwllheli all set in idyllic surroundings or go further afield to Criccieth, Porthmadog or Harlech (Royal St David's).


Visit the National Trust attractions Plas yn Rhiw, a delightful manor house with ornamental gardens, or Plas Newydd Country House and Gardens on Anglesey or the castles at Criccieth, Caernarfon, Harlech and Beaumaris. Take a trip to Aberdaron, a former fishing village which was traditionally the last port of call for pilgrims to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), from Aberdaron you can take a ferry across to this tranquil retreat.

The quaint villages of Beddgelert and Betws-y-Coed (the "Gateway to Snowdonia")are well worth a visit. Take days out on the award winning Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway from Porthmadog and Caernarfon.  Visit Llechwedd Slate Caverns, Portmeirion, the italianate Village created by architect Clough Williams-Ellis or make a visit to the beautiful Snowdonia mountain range and take the mountain railway on a journey of a lifetime to the "Rooftop of Wales", Snowdon.


If adventure is what you are looking for, then look no further as Llyn can offer you a variety of activities.  In May you can enter the 10K road race which finishes up on the main Abersoch beach or the shorter 3K beach race.  June offers the Sprint Triathlon and 1k run, part of the Abersoch Triple Crown. Abersoch and Pwllheli continue to host many national and international sailing events. There is a packed calendar of sailing events at SCYC including the Abersoch Regatta in August.  In September, The Open Water Swim Event and the Abersoch Half Marathon continue to draw in the visitors.  The popular RNLI New Year's Day Dip is also held on Abersoch main beach. It is becoming more popular each year, so why not come along and support the RNLI.

These are just a few of the many events, days out and attractions, all well worth a visit.  Contact the local tourist information office (01758 712929) or visit for further details.
