Abersoch Beach

Abersoch Beach is probably the most popular beach in the area. Its sheltered position makes it ideal for bathers and watersports lovers alike, though there is no lifeguard cover. Its easterly aspect means it faces the mountains of west Wales and St Tudwals Islands giving spectacular views.

The beach is considered to be safe with no severe currents or rips in normal conditions. A motor boat exclusion zone provides a secure area for bathers. Speed restrictions are enforced near to the beach marked by a series of yellow buoys.

International sailing events are held from this beach providing a wonderful spectacle. A large number of yachts are moored in the bay during the summer months. The beach is also popular with powerboat users and windsurfers. The prevailing south-westerly wind blows cross-shore here which is ideal for windsurfers. There are no waves for surfers to be found here, rough water conditions occur when the wind blows from an easterly quarter.

Paddle around the harbour to the north and you get to Quarry Beach which is quieter with lovely safe swimming. You can take pleasure boat trips from Abersoch to St Tudwals to see seals and bottlenose dolphins.

There are no immediate facilities, you need to go into town.
