You don’t necessarily have to do anything while you’re staying at your Abersoch vacation rental. Just being here, soaking up the atmosphere and pleasures of a traditional seaside town, is enough. That being said, those who do want to keep themselves occupied will find there’s much to keep them busy during their stay.
Abersoch Beach is the main draw of the town, and though there are many beaches to choose from, this is perhaps the best. Soft, clean sand is complemented by beautifully blue water and great views of the surrounding beach. If you visit during the summer, you’ll see many colourful yachts lining the shores, especially if there’s one of the international sailing events taking place. This beach is ideal for those who like spending time out on the water; you can also use powerboats and the area is a popular spot for windsurfers.
Everyone is welcome at Abersoch Beach. The pleasant conditions and great views make it a great spot for a day of classic beach activities, be it sunbathing or building sandcastles. Unfold your beach towel, lie back, and enjoy the mountains and islands that lie off in the distance.
If you’re looking for a beach that comes with a little more action than the calmness of Abersoch Beach, cast your eye towards Porth Neigw, which is colloquially known as Hell’s Mouth. Whereas Abersoch Beach is sheltered from the elements, Hell’s Mouth receives its full force. This is the Atlantic at its very best - wild, rugged, and all round fun. You’re unlikely to spend the day sunbathing here, but surfers will find some of the best surf in Wales. Even if you’re not a surfer, it’s worth heading to the beach just for a bright and windy early morning stroll.
Abersoch’s coast also lends itself to some of the area’s best walks. The Wales Coast Path, which stretches the whole country, has a section in Abersoch. The designated path is a terrific walk and will show those with an Abersoch vacation home the extent of the beauty found in this part of the world. Another popular trail is the Cim Farm Circular Walk, which stretches for slightly more than 4 kilometres around the regions farmland and comes with great views of the St. Tudwal's Islands.
