It is also well known as a boating resort and it hosts many national boating events each year.

The village itself, although small, is well supplied with numerous good eating places and shops.

Aberdaron is a quaint little village on the tip of the Llyn Peninsula – approximately 14 miles away. It has a lovely beach, cafes, 2 public houses and a bakery with a thatched roof.

A short distance away is Uwchmynydd – this is the tip of the Peninsula – with stunning views towards Bardsey Island, known as the legendary "Island of 20,000 Saints", it was said that 3 pilgrimages to Bardsey was equal to one pilgrimage to Rome. The mountains of Wicklow can be seen on a clear day.

Beaches

There are many beautiful beaches in the area – the closest one being the Warren – just across the road from our entrance; there is also another beach in the centre of Abersoch.

There are so many lovely beaches in the area – all within approximately half an hour’s drive – Porthor (Whistling Sands) – where the sand actually whistles under your feet; we have Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth) which is ideal for surfers, and many small coves in the area.

St. Tudwal’s Islands, Half Tide Rocks or Bardsey Island have their large colony of seals which is well worth a visit on one of the pleasure boats which take people out.

Ty Coch, Morfa Nefyn (www.tycoch.co.uk) is well worth a visit – it is a lovely walk from Morfa Nefyn golf club down to the beach at Porthdinllaen – this caption was in a local paper recently: The Ty Coch Inn is arguably the best pub in Wales and OFFICIALLY in the top ten beach bars in the world... according to a recent survey.
