Abersoch – a guide to one of the UK’s most wonderful hidden gems

While many people may be familiar with the delights of Abersoch, there are plenty of others who might not even know this hidden Welsh gem exists. A place that truly has something for everyone –it’s a spot that’s well worth considering next time you’re looking to take a UK break.
Whether you decide to buy a wetsuit and try out some of the fantastic water sports on offer, or get some cheap motorbike insurance and a little scooter to tour the gorgeous coastline, you’ll be well looked after here. Here is or guide on what to do in Abersoch.

Wake up to wakeboarding

If you’ve ever wondered what that weird-looking water sport is that looks like a crazy combination of water-skiing and surfing, well, that would be wakeboarding – and Abersoch is famous for it. Every year the local area comes alive when Wakestock arrives in town and some of the world’s best boarders get together for some fun in the sun.

Get down to the sunny sounds

If you don’t fancy getting wet and would much rather chill out and listen to some music, the festival also provides this! This year’s Wakestock takes place between July 6th and 8th with confirmed acts including Calvin Harris, Rizzle kicks, Katy B, Dizzee Rascal, All American Rejects and many, many more.

Get your motor running

If you feel that racing urge to get behind the wheel, the nearby Glasfryn Park offers a number of go kart rides and quad bike courses. On the other hand, if you have your own scooter or motorbike, why not just take in the great local coastlines yourself and stop for lunch somewhere while you’re out?

Bum it on the beach

If all of that sounds a little too stressful, Abersoch also has loads and loads of beaches where you can take your family and friends for a more private party. Pack a picnic and go kite-flying on the delightful sand dunes or just take a leisurely stroll with the dog – it really is a beautiful place to do any or all of the above.

Eat and drink

Well, it’s what we all go on holidays for, right? If fine food and wine is your scene, there are plenty of lovely little spots to get some tucker in the town – many of which have a wonderful atmosphere and locally-sourced produce. Angelina’s is a cracking Italian restaurant that does some great dishes and has a warm and friendly staff – so be sure and stop by one evening
