Reasons for trip

Lovely little village in North Wales. Great spot for a stop after visiting the Peninsula. It gets quite busy in summer, especially on weekends. There is a massive car park right next to the beach, public restrooms and plenty of picnic benches. A few pubs, cafés and shops are spread out, and it’s really family friendly!

I can recommend a few local businesses that are really good there:

1. The fish and chips shop (Sblash – Caban Pysgod) is the best of North Wales! Delicious fresh fish, friendly staff and handy outside sitting area next to the bridge. They worked hard to make the place Covid-19 safe!

2. The bakery (Becws Islyn): right at the entrance of the village, it’s serve amazing bread, pie, viennoiseries, … the smell coming off there is always lush!

3. The beach café (Caffi Traeth): small little take-away café right on the beach. Serves Welsh Maid ice-cream (the best one!), nice coffees, cold drinks, snacks,… friendly man working there!

4. Many lovely camping and caravan sites! I can’t speak up for myself because I live close by, so I never needed to use them, but many friends highly recommend them!! So much choice and the best sea view!

Aberdaron also have the best view on the sea, being the far western tip of the Llŷn Peninsula. I highly recommend going on top of Mynydd Rhiw (which rise up to 997 feet) and offers the most incredible view on Aberdaron and on the Bardsey Island (which can be visited too by boat). It’s possible to drive to the top on a small rocky road, or walk up. Loads of friendly sheep are always on the way. The atmosphere there is quite unique!

The sunset there is absolutely stunning!!
