Local attractions

Aberdaron hosts numerous sailing regattas featuring clinker built boats unique to the area. Sea angling trips are operated from Porth Meudwy, fishing for pollock, coley and mackerel; wrasse, bass, mullet and gurnard are also possible. Bass and coley can be caught from the rocks at Porth Iago; and wrasse, pollock and mackerel are plentiful. Access is difficult at Uwchmynydd, but pollock, mackerel, wrasse and conger are caught; huss are plentiful; and ling are found occasionally.
The Llŷn Coastal Path (Llwybr Arfordir Llŷn) stretches for 84 miles (135 km) around the Gwynedd coast.

The village is a popular walking centre and lies on the Llŷn Coastal Path, which runs 84 miles (135 km) from Caernarfon to Porthmadog.[179] Kayaking is possible from both Aberdaron and Porth Neigwl, and the south-facing "sunshine coast" is a major attraction; there are camping facilities for canoeists on the shores of Porth Neigwl. Tidal streams are generally weak, although landing conditions are tricky when there is wind or swell from the south.

The area has excellent diving. Underwater visibility at Bardsey Island extends to 66 feet and there is a rich variety of sea life; it is considered some of the best diving in Gwynedd. The Ynysoedd Gwylanod are particularly popular, and the wreck of the Glenocum, in Bae Aberdaron, is excellent for novices. an extremely large conger eel lives in the lower section of the boiler openings.There is spectacular diving at Pen y Cil, where there is a slate wreck and an unusual cave dive

The beach at Aberdaron attracts both bathers and surfers; it received a Seaside Award in 2008.

Bathing is popular along the coast. Aberdaron Beach, facing south west, is sandy, gently shelving and safe; it received a Seaside Award in 2008. Porthor also attracts bathers, and has sands which squeak when walked on; the beach at Porth Neigwl was awarded a Green Coast Award in 2009

Aberdaron Beach is a surfing and bodyboarding location for surfers of all levels, although it can be dangerous at high tide when the waves break directly onto boulders underneath the cliff. The better surfers head for the northern end.
