You’ll find Surf Snowdonia in the village of Dolgarrog in the Conwy Valley. Right on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park in North Wales, it’s a place we think you’re going to love – if you don’t already, that is.
Snowdonia may well take its name from the highest peak south of Hadrian’s Wall, but as well as the jagged mountain tops and knife-edge passes you’ll find a region that’s packed full of sheltered wooded valleys, beautiful lakes, estuaries as well as some stunning sandy beaches.
It’s the ideal holiday location for anyone who loves nature, adventure and the boundless potential of the Great Outdoors. There’s plenty going on if you love being active in the fresh air.
Walking, climbing and picnicking opportunities are all around us, but if you like more organised fun then there are plenty of different possibilities with some great activity centres. See the Adventure Map page for more details.
All those mountains have to end somewhere, and in Snowdonia’s case they tumble down to almost 200 miles of coast. We really are pretty lucky to have such a beautiful, varied landscape right on our doorstep.
The Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc is about eight miles from the sea. There are plenty of beaches in the region that are enjoyed by surfers, with the best conditions usually between October and June. We sometimes have to wait a while for our ocean waves here in North Wales, but when the surf’s on you really could be anywhere.
Porth Neigwl – also known as Hell’s Mouth – is probably the best-known coastal surf spot in North Wales. It’s a four-mile stretch of south-westerly facing beach which can host a pretty good swell and produce some fun waves. You’ll find it around 50 miles from Surf Snowdonia, on the Llŷn Peninsula.
Other favourite surf beaches in the area include Rhosneigr, Aberdaron, Porth Ceiriad and a few hidden gems for those who like to avoid a crowd. Water sports are big in this part of the UK and there’s loads going on the water from SUP to kitesurfing, kayaking to white water rafting. Surf Snowdonia is a great place for you to stop to enjoy some guaranteed wave action and maybe some tuition on your way to the coast.
