Aberporth Beach Cardigan Bay

The village of Aberporth bustles with activity in the summer. It boasts two sandy sheltered beaches with rock pools exposed at low tide. There is a small car park above the south section of the beach. Further parking can be found in the village. Swimming is considered safe here and during the school holidays - from mid-July to the end of August - Ceredigion's Beach Officer Lifeguard Service normally establishes patrolled bathing areas daily. You can enjoy circular walks from Aberporth, a short coast walk from Aberporth to Tresaith, and other walks along Ceredigion's Heritage Coast. It is possible to walk north along the coastal path to the nearby village of Tresaith.
