Walking Route, free entry


Section 5 - total distance 11.9km (7.4 miles) Aberaeron to Llanrhystud

The easiest stretch of coastpath in Ceredigion runs mostly along the top of soft cliffs on the coastal flats. Although these cliffs are low, care should be taken as they are subject to rapid erosion and may be undercut.

Aberaeron to Aberarth
Distance 3.1km (1.9miles), grade - easy

Aberarth to Llanon
Distance 4.8km (3.0 miles), grade - moderate / easy
The southern half of this section involves a gentle climb up Graig-ddu while the northern half returns to the coastal flats. There are no stiles on this section of path and to the north both the terrain and the gates are push chair friendly.

Two route options exist through Llanon. The foreshore route near the car park can be impassable when the river is in full flow. The route through the village is also signed and allows access to shops and other facilities. Route maps are displayed at either end of this section.

Llanon to Llanrhystud
Distance 4.0km (2.5 miles), grade - easy
The southern end of this stretch of coastpath runs a little inland for a while before returning to the low cliff tops. A highlight of this section is at Craig-las (top left) where four lime kilns stand in a row.
