Originally a small fishing village, Abersoch is now known for its beach and associated water sports, such as sailing and windsurfing. The wind and waves at Porth Neigwl or Hell’s Mouth particularly attract extreme surfers. Over the last 60 years the town has become one of Britain’s most important sailing centers.
Mount Snowdon in the nearby Snowdonia National Park can be clearly seen on a clear day. A golf course, a caravan parking lot, several hotels, bars and restaurants round it off.
