With its stunning beaches, renowned sailing waters and traditional village charm, it’s no wonder Abersoch is one of North Wales’ best-loved resorts. A holiday cottage in Abersoch is the perfect base for exploring the spectacular coast of the rugged Lyn Peninsula. Originally a fishing port, Abersoch is now a thriving resort with a lovely selection of independent shops and a handful of great places to eat. A boat trip around St Tudwal’s Islands gives you the chance to see dolphins and seals, with a backdrop of North Wales’ most breath-taking scenery – including Snowdonia.
Abersoch holiday cottages are ideal for beach-lovers, with miles of unspoilt, golden sand stretching away from the village, as far as the eye can see. Abersoch’s sheltered Main Beach is a wonderful spot for whiling away a day on the sand with a bucket and spade – and just a leisurely stroll from most of the village’s holiday cottages. Rent a classic beach hut and catch one of the bay’s famous international sailing events, or hit the water and try your hand at windsurfing. A variety of sweeping bays and secluded coves can be found within a few miles of Abersoch. One of the most beautiful has to be Porth Neigwl – also known as Hell’s Mouth. Exposed to the full force of the Atlantic, this is a popular surf spot and a must-see for its unique scenery.
Staying in an Abersoch holiday cottage provides visitors with easy access to a range of excellent events and attractions. Golfers won’t want to miss the village’s challenging 18-hole course, while extreme sports fans are advised to check out Wakestock, one of the world’s best wakeboarding competitions. Abersoch is nestled in the heartland of the Welsh language, a region swathed in myth and legend. Explore the ancient churches along the Pilgrim’s Trail, and don’t leave without taking a day trip to one of the area’s imposing castles. After a day exploring, unwind with a drink at a traditional pub, such as The Vaynol, or order a plate of fresh seafood at one of the village’s independent restaurants, before returning to your Abersoch holiday cottage to fall asleep to the sound of the sea.
