More and more people are visiting Abersoch "out of season" as Abersoch is not just about summertime! More businesses in the village are remaining open longer throughout the year - including the cafes and restaurants and more of the shops. You will find that the shops often have winter sales on with bargains you would not normally find during the "season". So if you fancy getting away from all the hustle and bustle of life - maybe a weekend or day trip to Abersoch "out of season," might be the answer.

If you are lucky with the weather there are plenty of sheltered sun traps - and it is not unusual to see sunbathers on Abersoch Main Beach in mid-winter!
