Almost at the end of the Lleyn Peninsula, this small village opens out onto the beach and Cardigan Bay. Here the few visitors that could make their way here enjoy a lazy day on the beach. Aberdaron's 12th-century church of St Hywyn was ministered for many years by one of the great Welsh poets of the 20th century (or any century), R S Thomas.
During the last war my father served in the Merchant Navy and saw Aberdaron from the sea, that was to be the beginning of many trips and a life-long love of the village.
I started going to Aberdaron at about the age of six and have been going each year since then. My parents, now both sadly deceased, loved it as I do. I cannot imagine a year going by without a visit whether for a short or longer one.

What is an Album?
An album is a way to save a selection of Frith photos, maps and memories that are of interest to you.
Creating an Album enables you to make short lists and then make a final selection from the album. In particular it makes ordering things like calendars much easier - simply create an Album of the 12 photos you like and then use the Album when placng your order - our order process will give you this option.
You can create as many Albums as you want, so perhaps make one for your hometown, where you live now, where your parents live now etc.
