Stunning location and circular walk around the valley through beautiful countryside on relatively easy paths with just a few rocky stairs around the falls.
Keep an eye out just off the track for rocky ruins that are covered in grass and moss or being used as a snug by the many sheep that roam the valley.
Car park was busy soon after 11am so recommend getting there early: It costs £5 to park but the machine only takes coins.
It was very busy at the falls on a Sunday too: not recommended if you're seeking solitude. Walk further along the path from Aber falls to the quieter but smaller Rhaeadr bach.

A long and narrow road with a couple of passing points leads you to the car parking areas where it costs £5 per day. From there it is a long walk, gradually uphill, flat, covered with chippings that is approx 5ft wide. It is a pleasant walk through the open countryside with a couple of places you can stop to enjoy the surroundings; or take a breather. But it's downhill on the way back!
It is an extremely well visited area and it can be difficult to find a space to park. There seemed to be a never ending stream of people walking up and down, almost conveyor like. The waterfall is impressive even in July with little rain for weeks.

Absolutely stunning waterfall and area around. If you have time and like a long walk then park in the village at the bottom but it is quite a walk up to the other car parks at the top so if you have children would recommend using the top car park. The top car park was cash only £5 and by lunch time it is full. There are 2 walks, the long way round which was about 2 hours from the top car park but the other route takes about 25 mins at a fast walk. Place was busy but lots of room to distance. Defiantly a must see if visiting North Wales.

Beautiful walk up to an absolutely stunning waterfall. You're able to cross the waterfall using rocks and stones which adds an element of fun too! We ate at a local cafe called Caffi a canolfen gwybodaeth which did delicious paninis and spectacular cake. Only downside was parking cost £5 for the day and could only be paid in coins.

Spent a few hours here. Not far from the A55. Car park was fairly busy but we easily found somewhere to park, it costs £5, machine only takes coins. There are no toilet facilities.
It takes approx 1 hour to walk to the falls along a well laid out stony path, which isn’t hard to navigate. Great views along the way. Appropriate footwear required. The day we visited the sun was out, so take water to drink. We had our dog with us, and he loved the walk and the refreshing swim in the water
The walk was worth it as the falls were beautiful. It was fairly busy the day we went with people walking in both directions, but not over crowded, but I daresay it could possibly get busier

Really didn’t know what to expect, but what a beautiful waterfall.
The walk is all uphill going (no surprise there) and the path is well maintained but shale/stones, so wear suitable footwear, not flip flops like some people we saw. Also people were struggling with pushchairs, so maybe not for very young children unless they can walk the 45 mins uphill or if they can be carried by their parents. We also saw many dogs on route, some of which were elderly or short legged breeds and were obviously struggling, be mindful of what your dog is capable of. There were a few benches on the way to stop and have a rest if needed.
On the downside however is the parking. We attempted to drive up to the two car parks, but both were very busy, so turned round and parked lower down in the village and walked an extra 10mins. Glad we did, because we saw so many cars with exasperated drivers unable to park, or queues of cars trying to squeeze through narrow lanes because of other people’s bad parking. Saw so many selfish drivers, and bad parking. At one point a lady had to reverse down a narrow section and took about 10mins because of the amount of cars waiting behind her and in front trying to get past. Just easier to park in the village and walk. We still made it back to our car quicker than the cars queuing to get out of the car park.
The waterfall is stunning, you can hear the roar of the water from some distance but then it just appears in front of you! A little further downstream, people, children and dogs were having a paddle and a drink in the water. It took us in total about 2 hours to walk from the village and back, and also stopped for a picnic on route.

The falls are definitely worth a visit, so stunning! Parking is £5 payable only in coins so make sure you come prepared, the road getting there is very small and only one car can pass at locations so can imagine it's a nightmare at busy times.
We visited on a Monday afternoon at around 4pm and had the falls basically to ourselves and saw no other cars getting to the car park.
An easy return walk, about 30-40 mins each way, on a flat path with a small incline at the beginning. Suitable for buggys. Saw people having a dip in the pools and wish I had taken a swim suit.

We got there at 2pm and it was very busy - we got the last parking spot on the road! Parking is £5 for all day which is reasonable but if you’re only visiting the falls, it’s a bit pricey!

The walk itself is fine with a few uphill hikes to contend with - saw a few people with pushchairs struggling! The falls are breathtaking and well worth the walk. It was very busy but there’s plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the view with many people bringing a picnic.

Definitely worth a trip!!

Firstly, please ensure you are aware to bring £5 in coins only for the parking charge - and that the machine only accepts £1 coins, £2 coins and 50p coins.
Luckily, we had read a review on Trip Advisor before we went, so were able to scrabble together some coins; however, a lot of people we met at the car park only had £5 notes or cards. As there are no shops nearby, and car parking spaces are few and far between on busy days, thus really is a bit of a problem, if you don’t come prepared with your coins.
Sad really, as so many other places allow you to pay parking via your card.
So, there are two car parks, but they do get full on nice days. There are decent toilets in the upper car park.
The walk to the Falls takes about 40 minutes each way, it is a little strenuous initially, but then levels out.
The Falls are stunning, and definitely worth the visit. Nice places to stop at the Falls if you bring your own picnic.
The village itself is only small, and we didn’t notice any shops or cafes.

Abergwyngregyn is just of the A55 Expressway. You can park free on the edge of the village and walk the extra mile through the village and up the pretty lane. Save the £5 parking fee at the official carpark and see a lot more of the natural beauty of the valley to the sounds of the birds and bubbling river.

The walk to the falls is through stunning scenery and is smooth enough for child buggies and wheelchairs. The terrain at the falls is slightly more challenging for the less able but great for adventurous kids who can clamber down to the shallow river and paddle in the (usually very cold) water.

If you have parked at the edge of the village you might enjoy walking over the wooden bridge by the falls and heading west to the second falls, then follow the path over the hills back round to Abergwyngregyn, enjoying the stunning views of the sea and across to Anglesey and Puffin Island

There are toilets at the car park but none at the falls.

Why not take a picnic? You may end up staying longer than you expect, especially if you have adventurous kids.
