  • Top 4 Beaches in North Wales
20 Apr 2021

Here at Aberdunant Hall Holiday Park we are extremely proud of the view of the beautiful forests and mountains that surround the park but on a glorious sunny day you can't beat the view of a wide open beach and mesmerizing waves breaking on the sand. Visitors to Aberdunant Hall Holiday Park are spoilt for choice not only is there the spectacular panoramic view of the Snowdonia National Park but the holiday park itself is set in its own manicured grounds.

However, that's not all, Aberdunant is within in easy driving distance of some of the best beaches in Wales. You really are spoilt for choice. To make it easier we've detailed our top 4 North Wales beaches.

1. Black Rock Sands
Perfect for fun times and exploration, the wide sandy beach is surrounded by romantic sand dunes perfect for beach day picnics with the family. At the one end a rocky headland towers over rock pools and caverns ideal for discovering the treasures of the sea and at the other the flat beach runs on for miles. Black Rock Sands is the closest beach to the holiday park and our favourite. In the winter months you can even take your vehicle onto the beach …so no need to carry that awkward windbreak from the car park. Keep an eye out for the ice-cream man.

2. Criccieth
The beautiful seaside town of Criccieth is overlooked by the majestic Criccieth castle, which stands proud between two Blue Flag Beaches, Criccieth East and Criccieth West. The West is sandy and ideal for taking a dip. The East is both sandy and pebbly and dotted with rock pools full of wildlife. This is a great area for those who like to walk along the sands, relax and breathe in that lovely fresh Welsh air.

3. Abersoch
For Sun-worshippers, Abersoch is the place to head to. Sheltered sun spots can be found everywhere, which makes it a beach to head to on even the windiest of days. Surf shops and cool cafes means your teenagers will love to hang out here. Abersoch has some of the best sailing waters in North Wales and if you're in town for August then join in the festival atmosphere at the Glass Butter Beach festival.

4. The West Shore, Llandudno
If you're looking for that perfect beach escape then head up to The West Shore, it's quiet yet family friendly and has beach inspectors in the high season. Sandwiched between the west shore coastal path and a splendid Jurassic period coastline believed to be the inspiration for Lewis Carol's Alice in Wonderlands - Walrus and the Carpenter tale. With toilets, fish 'n' chips and a car park you'll be in for a summer treat.
