Aber Falls | Waterfall in Wales

Updated: Jan 2

This beautiful waterfall in North Wales is called Aber Falls. It requires a bit of walking to get to, unlike many of the other waterfalls on this list. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the waterfall from the parking lot near the village of Abergwyngregyn, which the postcode is LL33 0LP (£2 for the day), you can return along the same route.

Aber Falls is a beautiful waterfall at the end of an amazing valley. For those with walking difficulties, you'll be pleased to know there is step free access all the way to one side of the waterfall. There is access to the other side however this requires irregular descending steps to a bridge and then more climbing on the opposite bank.


However, going via this route gives a good view of the waterfall from a higher viewpoint which is part sloping rocky grass.

One of the best waterfalls I've seen. Not the biggest or fastest or most dramatic but its just a lovely location with plenty of space at the falls for people to have a paddle. – Google Review

As part of the Wales Coastal Path, there is a longer, three-hour circular trail. This path will lead you to a breath-taking vantage point from which you can see the isle of Anglesey across the strait.
