I haven't visited this beach for a while, but remember it as having a sandy beach with a few rocks exposed at low tide. Aberdaron itself is a picturesque village overlooking the spectacular northern waters of Cardigan Bay, with numerous footpaths and scenic routes in the area, plus boat trips from nearby Porth Meudwy to Bardsey Island. In an area of AONB, Heritage Coast, SSSI and cSAC.

In light winds it offers a good location for beginners although rips can develop. In stronger winds it offers good wave sailing conditions for more experienced windsurfers with SW winds being cross-onshore.

The surf here is often better than at the more popular Hells Mouth and it is best surfed at mid tide.

Parking is available near the beach and the usual seaside amenities are close at hand. Access to the beach is easy. Dog restrictions are in place in certain areas of the beach.
