Aberdaron Beach

Aberdaron, Gwynedd, LL53 8BE

Aberdaron, on the Llŷn Heritage Coast, has a glorious sandy beach with easy access (including disabled access). The picturesque village, on Llŷn’s western tip bordering spectacular seas, is home to many watersports – including surfing and wakeboarding – and hosts an annual sailing regatta. On the beach you will come across a few large rocks scattered in the fine sand, but your attention will be drawn away from these and fixed upon the beautiful headlands on both ends of the beach. Not only does these headlands offer great views but they also create a shelter for the beach. Dogs are welcome on the beach, if they keep to the left side of the slipway. There is a craft exclusion zone in place to protect swimmers. There’s a good choice of boat trips too, from fishing expeditions to a journey across to Bardsey, the heritage- and wildlife-rich ‘Isle of 20,000 Saints’. Plentiful car parking, shops and cafés are other plus-points, and there is an excellent range of accommodation in the village to suit all visitors.
