A fashionable retreat where people indulge in watersports by day and throng to its bars and bistros by night, Abersoch is a slice of the good life. Its beach, lined with pretty wooden huts that have become highly sought-after property, is popular for bathing and barbecues, and an excellent vantage point from which to take in the local sailing regattas. There’s even more to be had from this stretch of shoreline, from the surfing hotspot of Porth Neigwl (aka Hell’s Mouth), to quiet romantic coves and dog-friendly walking. The pilgrims’ trail that wound through this part of Gwynedd has scattered the countryside with historic churches and medieval villages like nearby Aberdaron; and the Wales Coast Path offers walking and cycling with spectacular sea views.
This part of North Wales is beloved for its remoteness, so you shouldn’t expect getting here to be easy. The nearest train station is in the town of Pwllheli, 15 minutes away, and while a rail journey from London takes seven hours, the view does make up for it. Rent a car and you’ll be able to make plenty of pauses and stops along the way as you drive through the stunning scenery of Snowdonia National Park. The nearest airport, Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LPL), has direct flights from more than 70 European cities; Manchester Airport (MAN), which offers more destinations further afield, is a three-hour drive away. London, with its major hubs of Gatwick and Heathrow, takes five and a half hours.
Wales has a reputation for being rainy, even during the summer months, so it’s worth being prepared with weatherproof layers and an umbrella whatever time of year you visit. Having said that, it’s rarely very cold, and extremely enjoyable when the sun is out, with temperatures hitting an average of around 70 degrees Fahrenheit in July and August. Spring and autumn are mild, and even in winter, the temperature won’t average much below 50 degrees. While Abersoch itself is nicely sheltered from the wind, the coastal paths along the Llŷn Peninsula will be much breezier, keeping it pleasantly cool when you’re walking in the sunshine.
Also known by the English name Bardsey Island, this tiny parcel of land, 1.5 miles long, became a major site of pilgrimage from the 5th century. You can still visit the remains of its 13th-century Augustinian abbey, and the so-called Island of 20,000 Saints is now a destination for birdlife.
You cannot visit Gwynedd without pausing at the village of Portmeirion to marvel at its extraordinary Italianate architecture, the 20th-century creation of a famous Welsh architect. The village has played a starring role in many films and television shows.
An hour’s drive away from Abersoch, on the opposite side of Cardigan Bay, this medieval fortress was one of several built by Edward I when the English king invaded Wales in the late 13th century. The castle was fought over for centuries, including in the Wars of the Roses and the English Civil War.
