Fishing Porth Ceiriad

Porth Ceiriad is a National Trust beach on the Llyn Coastal path, South of Abersoch near Bwlchtocyn. It is an almost south facing beach though not as rough and stormy as its sister beach Hells Mouth. Clean sand through out and sheltered at either end by hills. The best fishing at Port Ceiriad is 2 hours either side of low water and the same with high water. The Spring tides are better with dusk and dawn being the optimum times during the summer months.
During the winter, night fishing for codling and whiting is possible.

Porth Ceiriad


From Abersoch take the Sarn Bach road, do not turn left in Sarn Bach but take the next left signposted Bwlchtocyn. Follow this road for ¾ mile and then take the right turn which is signposted to Porth Ceiriad and Traeth/Beach. This road takes you to carparking in a field which has a pay and display car park. N.B. cctv will record your parking stay and you will be fined if you do not pay the correct fee. Take the path down to the beach, which is fairly steep in places and quite a climb back up!
