Abersoch is a village in the community of Llanengan in Gwynedd, Wales. It is a popular coastal seaside resort with about 1,000 inhabitants, on the east-facing south coast of the Llŷn Peninsula at the southern terminus of the A499. It is about 7mi south-west of Pwllheli and 27mi south-west of the county town of Caernarfon. The village takes its name from the river, Afon Soch, which reaches the sea in the village.Originally a fishing port, Abersoch is now a tourist centre specialising in 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 5 feet (1.5m); however south-westerly prevailing winds can affect quality.Each year since 2000 Abersoch has been host to Wakestock, a wakeboarding event. The Big Air competition on the main beach is held in July.The village has had a lifeboat station since 1869.Central Abersoch 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. Abersoch is also popular for its close proximity to Snowdonia National Park, with Snowdon being visible from Abersoch Bay on clear days. There is an 18-hole golf course. Abersoch has a primary school for 3 to 8 year olds. The neighbouring village of Sarn Bach has a primary school for 3 to 11 year olds. The two schools between them educate 74 pupils. The closest specialist school is Ysgol Hafod Lon in Pwllheli. Year 7 pupils travel to Ysgol Botwnnog, 5mi inland, which is mostly a Welsh medium school. Some non-Welsh speakers attend Ysgol Glan y Mor in Pwllheli, 7mi away.
