Sandy beaches, fishing villages and spectacular clifftop walks can all be discovered when staying in Aberdaron holiday cottages on the North Wales Coast. Often referred to as the ‘Land’s End of Wales’, this former fishing community lies on the western tip of the Llyn Peninsula, in the county of Gwynedd. After becoming an important shipbuilding centre and port in the 18th and 19th centuries, the village developed into a popular seaside resort. With its sandy beaches, fascinating history and wild coastline, it remains an excellent base for exploring the area’s sandy beaches and clifftop walks.
The village is home to a variety of family-run businesses including welcoming cafes, a bakery and a fish and chip shop. For a pint of local ale, head to the Ship, just behind the beach, by St Hywyn’s Church. From your holiday cottage in Aberdaron, the beach will be a stroll away.
Framed by a pair of headlands, it is a haven for water-sports including surfing and wakeboarding – and hosts an annual sailing regatta. It’s also a wonderful spot for sunbathing and swimming with fine, golden sand and pristine water. Explore the mile-long bay at low tide and you will discover rock pools and sea caves. From the beach, you can take a fishing trip or sail to Bardsey Island, a nature reserve renowned for rare birds.
