Abersoch has a few beaches near its lovely village, all of which lie on the beautiful Llyn Peninsula, which means that they afford you some pretty views over Cardigan Bay and the Irish Sea.

The main beach is arguably the biggest attraction of the area, however, with its sheltered position making it the ideal spot for a bit of sun bathing or swimming in the sea. It’s a safe beach, with no severe currents – perfect for a little paddling with the kids.

Abersoch Beach is great for a variety of other water sports, including wind surfing and sailing. In fact, international sailing events are frequently held here, providing some spectacle to onlookers. If you’d prefer to surf whilst in North Wales, there are plenty of beaches nearby that offer good waves.

You can rent out a lovely beach hut by the day (have a word with the people at the café to find out more), as well as enjoy a boat trip to the nearby Bardsey Island and St Tudwal’s Islands. Part of the beach is dog-restricted, meaning they are not allowed between April and September for those preferring a dog-free zone. The rest of the beach is fine for dogs and dog lovers alike.
