Fish first thing in the morning or last thing at night. If targeting the Bass on the flood tide dont cast too far! The fish can be following the tide just 25 yards out…

The best time for tides are an hour before low water to an hour after high water



Follow the one way system around Abersoch, then at the Harbour Hotel turn left. Follow this road through Llanengan and a mile or so further there is a carpark on the left hand side. This carpark can be busy during the main summer period. Take the walkway across to the beach.
