The HARBOUR BEACH is a small area of sand straddling the River Soch - between the outer harbour and the Warren beach. It is often quiet in terms of numbers of people though it is a throughfare for tractors and so can be quite noisy! A large area of sand is exposed at low tide.
The Harbour Beach at Abersoch straddles both sides of the Afon Soch, one of the longest rivers in western Llyn. The small harbour wall on the southern side of the river is popular with children (young and otherwise) looking for crabs off the wall at high tide.
When the tide is out there is plenty of sand and the whole harbour dries out except for the river. The southern side of the river has a dog ban, but dogs are allowed on a section of the beach to the north of the river. There is very little car parking around either side of the river. On the south shore of the river is the village centre so amenities are close by, if your on the northern shore you either paddle through the river or take the 5 minute walk around the inner harbour.
