Abersoch's inner harbour at high tide is this week's photo from John. One of the older cottages in the village, Compass Cottage, can be seen centre right, with Tim's boatyard st back and just to the right of the cottage. A bit further to the right is the bridge into Abersoch, with the tidal gates beneath it, which prevents the high tide from surging up the Afon Soch. These open naturally once the tide turns, to allow the Soch to flow into the sea.

Porth Neigwl beach on a cool Sunday afternoon is this week's photo from John. In the distance is Rhiw headland and Ynys Enlli (Bardsey Island). Porth Neigwl is also known as Hell's Mouth and often sees surf conditions, enjoyed by the local surfers, but also hazardous bathing conditions.

The weather across Pen Llyn has been really rather good during the last week and the lovely conditions were captured by John on this photo, which was taken on the Wales Coastal Path - which provides wonderful walking (and running) around this magnificent coastline. The island is of course St. Tudwal's West Island, which has a very famous owner!

Clear blue skies above Abersoch, on a rather windy Sunday morning, is this week's photo from John. The easterly element to the wind brings some very choppy conditions to the bay and some also noticeable variations in wind strengths across the local area.

 

The photo was taken on 24/04/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 24/04/2022.

A shot looking towards the beautiful little outer harbour in Abersoch is this week's photo from John, taken on a sparkling day. The short harbour wall provides enough shelter for several boats to be anchored there for most of the year.

 

The photo was taken on 09/04/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 10/04/2022.

Colder weather has arrived after the glorious March spell which saw max temperatures of close to 20c on some days - which could be called a March "heatwave". This week's photo is from Tyddyn Talgoch Uchaf on Bwlchtocyn, looking down onto the the main beach and a rather choppy bay.

 

The photo was taken on 31/03/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 02/04/2022.

The weather in Abersoch has been more like summer this week than March, with the wind dropping out times to help the local warmth build. Plenty of people took advantage of the weather and headed to the beach. John took this shot from near the the cafe by the Golf Road slipway onto the main beach.

 

The photo was taken on 26/03/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 27/03/2022.

A shot of the beach huts on the main beach is again the view this week, as the easterly winds make pattern in the sand. The easterly weather often brings noticeable variations in wind strengths during the day in Abersoch, but also plenty of sunshine.

 

The photo was taken on 20/03/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 20/03/2022.

Phill Boyd is this week's guest photographer and he was out and about capturing images of Storm Eunice. It looks as though the Abersoch area escaped the worst of the weather, but gusts in excess of 80mph were recorded locally. This is the main beach, with a large shore dump and a higher than normal tide.


The photo was taken on 18/02/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 18/02/2022.

The photo was taken on 10/02/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 14/02/2022.

The northern end of the main beach, bathed in wintry sunlight, is this week's photo from John. The green links of the golf course can be seen in the foreground and Llanbedrog Head is in the background. Those links often turn quite brown / yellow in dry spells in the summer, due th the sandy soil, which also means they drain exceptionally well in winter.

 

The photo was taken on 26/01/2022 and it was uploaded on this page on 28/01/2022.
