Abersoch Beach • Southern End

Abersoch Beach Southern EndFor beach fishing in Abersoch the Southern end is a flat, clean, sandy beach, which  is northeast facing and generally sheltered. It is best fished on a good spring tide, the very best being if low water coincides with dusk. The beach can be very busy during the summer months during school holidays but often evenings are quieter and autumn, winter and spring times are great for fishing.
