Hells Mouth Beach, or Porth Neigwl, attracts thousands of surfers every year, and is also a popular spot with families. It sits between the headlands of Mynydd Cilan and Mynydd Penarfynydd, close to the tip of the peninsula, with a lovely 4 mile stretch of unbroken shoreline. It lives up to its name when the surf is up, but in better weather, it's a perfect crescent of sand and clear blue sea that is perfect for a traditional day out at the beach.
The beach is mainly sand, with some medium and large pebbles, backed by sand dunes and cliffs, making it a great place for a walk, or just to lay back and relax.Hell's Mouth rarely becomes crowded due to its size, although it does get pretty busy during the Wakeboard festival in July!You do need to be a strong swimmer to enjoy the water here, making it great for surfing, but not for inexperienced swimmers. Keep an eye out for Harbour porpoises and Bottlenose dolphins!
There is a small car park that is free to use, but the nearest facilities can be found at Llanengan, or Abersoch, which is only 2.5 miles away.
