Manaros is located on a quiet private lane in the village of Aberdaron map ref SH 172/266. Reaching the beach and the centre of the village entails tackling a 1/4 hill. To assist we have 2 electric “Tramper” all terrain buggies which can negotiate the hill with ease and give access all along the mile long sand and shingle beach. There is a public car park in the village centre for those wishing to go by car and parking adjacent to most shops out of peak season. There is wheelchair access to the promenade and Disabled Toilet.
We are proud to promote Manaros as a building that is user friendly for people with mobility/sight difficulties and will act positively and swiftly on any suggestions for improvements.
