Abererch (Welsh for "Mouth of the Erch") is a small village and former civil parish on the Lleyn Peninsula in the Welsh county of Gwynedd. The village lies approximately east of Pwllheli. A river, the Afon Erch runs through the village.

The parish was abolished in 1934 and incorporated into that of Llannor, now the community of Llannor.[2] It is a mostly Welsh-speaking village.[3]

Church of St Cawrdaf

There is a primary school, playschool, and a railway station. The church of St Cawrdaf is a grade I listed building.[4]

Abererch has a beach which is between Pwllheli and Penychain (Haven Holiday Park). Parking for the beach is near the railway station. From the beach you have a view of Harlech Castle in the east all the way down to Tywyn (on a clearer day even further south) and to the west Pwllheli and the St Tudwals. Access to the beach is through a footpath next the caravan and camp-site. This beach is ideal for days when the wind is from the north or north west due to the sheltered bay.
