Beach:Porth Ceiriad

  • National Trust

Beach, free entry

Nr Abersoch,
LL53 7BY



South facing and very sheltered, it's a good beach for sunbathing and popular for most water sports, especially surfing, bodyboarding, kayaking and sailing. Surf conditions at Porth Ceiriad can be excellent and are best around mid to high tide. Big swell days are not for beginners.

Dogs are allowed all year round and the beach can be accessed from the Wales Coast Path, south of Abersoch near Bwlchtocyn.

A short walk along Porth Ceiriad beach will reveal a fascinating insight into the formation of this part of the peninsula. Look away from the sea for a moment, back towards land, and you will see millions of years of geological evolution in front of you.

As you walk along take note of the angle of the rock layers. They are not horizontal. Millions of years of forces have ‘folded’ these rocks and tilted them into the shapes and angles we see today.
