Aberdaron | ©Si Panton



Aberdaron sits in splendid isolation at the far western tip of the Lleyn Peninsula. This charming seaside village, with its lime-washed fishermen’s cottages, is well worth seeking out. It has an excellent south facing beach which sits directly in front of the village. The ease of access and closeness to facilities ensures its popularity with families.

The beach can be a good spot for surfing and body boarding, but it is also a great spot to just potter about. The Afon Daron river flows through the village and into the bay via the beach. It emerges just next to the raised promenade, which is the perfect place to view the passage of sailing boats in the bay.

Aberdaron has operated as a hub for the local farming and fishing community for centuries. Lobsters, crab and mackerel are still caught in the sea. Boat trips around the end of the peninsula, or out to Bardsey Island operate from the nearby Porth Meudwy.

There is a delightful coastal walk running out to the adjacent Uchmynydd headland, which has superb views of Bardsey Island.

The village has two hotel bars, a few small shops and a fish and chip restaurant.

Between the 1st of April and 30th September the section of the beach from the river mouth tp the Ty Newydd hotel is designated as a dog exclusion area.

Approach / parking:

There is a National Trust car park by the river bridge in the centre of the village. A short walk through the village leads onto the beach.
