Llŷn surf experience

Surfing and bodyboarding are fantastic fun for people of all ages, sizes and abilities. Whatever your level of experience, a whole world of great waves and great times awaits – just watch out for when the surfing bug bites.

Hell's Mouth

An adventure for families as much as adrenaline junkies, Hell's Mouth (Welsh: Porth Neigwl) sits between the headlands of Mynydd Penarfynydd and Mynydd Cilan, close to the tip of the peninsula. This iconic four-mile stretch of unbroken shoreline is one of the most consistent surf spots on the Llŷn.

Relax on a gently shelving beach with vast expanses of sand and medium-sized pebbles at high tide. You can enjoy a number of great walks nearby with the Llŷn Coastal Path running alongside.

Get a taste for surfing at Hell’s Mouth. This south-west facing beach offers North Wales's best and most reliable surf break. It is great for surfing, body boarding and kayaking because of the large waves you’ll find here.

Catch some amazing waves

Surf conditions are fairly consistent as this long bay collects any swell pushing in from the Atlantic. The best waves break around mid tide and a reef at the northern end usually produces the best surf.
The middle of the bay near the car park usually offers waves which are suitable for beginners.

Great breaks nearby

Porth Ceiriad, Porthor and Trefor are other top surfing spots in the area, with Ceiriad in particular giving Llŷn’s best barrel in the right conditions. Big swell days are not for beginners.
