Abererch Beach - Gwynedd

This fine stretch of sand is really just an extension of Pwllheli beach, which runs from the village to the headland of Penychain. It is generally quieter than Pwllheli with the added bonus of having somewhat finer sand.

The main entrance to the beach is in front of the small Abererch Sands holiday park, which is home to many of the facilities including a shop.

Getting here is easy as Abererch has its own railway station just up the road. There is also plenty of parking close to.

As well as being a great family beach Abererch Sands is also popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers along with anglers.
