The Llyn Peninsula

Reaching out from the mountains of Snowdonia towards the Irish Sea this is the ancient landscape which feels like you are on the edge of the earth. The Llyn is a Designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.


Abersoch sits on the Llyn and has for nearly 100 years been a popular destination for people to holiday. Great beaches, internationally recognised sailing waters, pleasant climate and beautiful scenery.

People return year after year, it has that special quality that is difficult to put into words. It has become just as good to holiday out of the busy summer season when many businesses now remain open and many sales and bargains can be sourced in the good quality local shops and enjoy a meal or drink in a more peaceful atmosphere.

There are many events taking place over the year such as the Jazz Festival in June, Wakestock in July and the Regatta in August. www.abersoch.co.uk/events.php for full listing of events.
