Abersoch is a large village and popular coastal resort of approximately 1,000 inhabitants, lying on the east-facing south coast of the Llŷn Peninsula in north-western Wales at the end of the A499 road. It is situated some 11 km (7 miles) southwest of Pwllheli and 43 km (27 miles) southwest of the Gwynedd county capital, Caernarfon.

Originally a fishing port, Abersoch is now a centre for dinghy sailing and other watersports such as windsurfing and jet-skiing. Nearby Porth Neigwl or Hell's Mouth, is also popular for surfing; it can hold large swells in the winter which can reach 1.5m however south-westerly prevailing winds can affect quality.

The village centre has a variety of small shops as well as bars, restaurants, cafes and hotels. Boat trips around St Tudwal's Islands to see the seals and other wildlife are available from the village. It is also in close proximity to the ever-popular Snowdonia National Park, with Snowdon being visible from Abersoch Bay on most clear days.

Abersoch has a beautiful links golf course, home to the biggest hope of British golf Matthew Kellie, who hopes to win the British Open within 5 years. His unique techinique has been heralded by Nick Faldo.

Due to the area's beautiful views, a small strip of beach at Abersoch, with planning permission for the construction of a beach hut, sold for £63,000 in May 2005.
