Abersoch - a picturesque harbour village, nestling between two headlands - Cilan and Llanbedrog.

Specialized shops will cater for all your watersports needs - tuition by qualified instructors are also available.
The Harbour Beach , straddling the River Soch is the main area for launching boats, and can be terribly busy at peak periods, but the area of sand towards the Warren and Llanbedrog Quarry beach , with is luxury chalets , offer much quieter and ideal bathing areas. The harbour itself provides an excellent place for crab fishing at high tide.

The main beach - extends from the Harbour beach towards Cilan headland has its own cafe, shop and car park. Bathing is considered safer due to a boat exclusion zone. If you're lucky enough - you might be able to hire one of the beach huts - otherwise they are available to buy at £163,000 upwards!!
