Facts about what Aberdaron offers for Cottage Breaks

Less than two miles off the coast of Aberdaron, which was designated a Heritage Coast in 1974, lies Bardsey Island, the inhabitants of which are included in the community of Aberdaron. Aberdaron was once the last resting stop for pilgrims on their way to Bardsey, which is home to many sites of archaeological and historical interest such as the ruins of St Mary’s Abbey. Today, the island is wonderful for its abundance in wildlife, and there is a bird observatory on the island due to its fantastic position on several bird migration routes, and grey seals and dolphins can also be spotted from the island. Whilst on a cottage holiday, taking a day trip to Bardsey from Aberdaron is a must if you have an interest in wildlife and is an enjoyable day out for the whole family.

The beach at Aberdaron is home to secluded coves and golden sands and surfing, sailing and diving beneath the waters are all very popular. Sunbathing is also a popular activity here, which comes as no surprise, and there are also a couple of other beaches nearby if you want to explore further afield, such as Porthor and Porth Ysgo.
