Wales Coast Path, Abersoch

Wales Coast Path, Abersoch

2 miles; Abersoch, Wales, UK

We didn’t know it at the time but this was to be our last section of the Coast Path. It was basically a long beach walk and a stroll along a golf course. Pretty, though, as has been the case all along.

Beach Huts

Abersoch is a popular seaside holiday destination, and these beach huts are a veddy British thing. They can be either municipally- or privately-owned, and some may even have minimal amenities, such as bottled gas or electricity. They’re used basically for a place to sit out of the sun and to store personal items, and to change into or out of swimming clothes. The privately-owned ones can go for some eye-watering prices. In January 2016 a beach hut was sold in Brighton, Victoria, Australia for a record $285,000.

Borth Fawr Beach

Borth Fawr beach stretches northwards from Machroes to the headland at Abersoch. It made for a very pleasant stroll.

Lace-cap Hydrangea

It’s always a bit jarring to see a plant that is strictly a cultivated garden plant here in the states that seems to have escaped that cultivation in other countries. I remember also be struck by the profusion of brightly-colored flowering fuschia in Ireland that grew wild along the roadsides and trail sides.

Wild Blackberries

Lots of yummy blackberries along the road/trailsides, too.


Awww… Some little Welsh kiddo lost his groovy VW Vanagon shoe! So cute!
