Hells Mouth Beach
Porth Neigwl, or Hell's Mouth as it is also known, is a south west facing rural beach frequented by surfers and kayakers because of the relatively large waves. It is a gently shelving beach, consisting mainly of medium sized pebbles at high tide but with vast expanses of sand at low tide. The beach seldom gets busy and is often a good spot to get away from the busier beaches of Abersoch.
The perfect secluded getaway
We stayed as a family of five (2 adults, 2 young kids, and a dog) and loved every moment. The house is exceptional, it is a distance away from others - you find yourselves isolated (in the best meaning of the term), in a very quiet area and with an abundance of space to enjoy yourselves. The house is very well kept, extremely tidy and clean. It is stocked full of games, kids toys, fascinating books and films. The decoration makes you say “ok, I’m stealing this idea when I get home”. The swimming pool is fantastic. It would be hard to find something negative. As for the area - do try out the recommended fish+chips shop. You will love it. Everything we wanted to see was within a suitable drive for kids, and plenty of beaches were nearby too. The owner/host is very friendly, always accommodating, and extremely helpful in making the stay the best it can be.
