Explore Aberdaron

A historic fishing village, often referred to as the Welsh equivalent of Land’s End, with miles of sandy beaches and hidden gems to explore, Aberdaron is a must-visit corner of The Llyn Peninsula.

Aberdaron was the last stop for pilgrims on their way to Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island), which was once home to over 20,000 saints and is now a Nature reserve with a vast array of birdlife. The area is full of religious, industrial, and maritime history and culture. The Fresh air on the Llyn Peninsula brings out the poet in people, and the area has seen many Eisteddfod participants.

Food & Drink

With the main commercial fishing industry on the Llyn Peninsula heavily reduced to a few crab and lobster boats, you can be sure to find some of the best quality local crab and lobster in the UK. Gwesty Ty Newydd has one of the best views for a hotel in all of Wales, serving delicious food and refreshing drinks to enjoy on the terrace overlooking Abedaron Beach and the Irish Sea. Sblash Fish Bar is great for dine-in or take out fish and chips. Becws Islyn is a locally renowned bakery and cafe, and it is a must-visit for a bite to each and a fresh loaf of bread. When looking a little further afield, Abersoch and Nefyn are both great destinations with plenty of food and drink options, not to mention the famous Ty Coch pub.

Things to Do

A day trip to Bardsey Island is a must when visiting Aberdaron. Plas yn Rhiw is a national trust manor house with stunning views and immaculate ornamental gardens. Porth y Swnt is a fascinating interpretation centre right in the heart of Aberdaron, which helps you learn more about Llyn’s culture, heritage, and environment. There is an abundance of coastal and country footpaths and lanes to explore. The Llyn has some of the country’s best surfing spots for the more adventurous, with Porth Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth) being one of them. West Coast Surf Shop and Offaxis can help with lessons and equipment. The hidden nooks and crannies around the Llyn coastline are perfect for exploring the coast whilst Sea Kayaking.
