Close to the town, the clean, dark sand and shingle beach is accompanied by traditional seaside treats such donkey rides, bandstand entertainment and a bouncy castle and the town's Victorian Pier. Built in 1864, Aberystwyth Pier's was once some 242 metres in length but time and marine storms have seen it reduced to today's 90 metres.

The main focus of the Promenade and seafront is Marine Terrace with its Victorian and Edwardian style architecture and hotels. The promenade also features music, choirs and other performances during the summer.

Constitution Hill lies at the quieter northern end of the Promenade and features a cliff railway with the largest camera obscura in the world. On clear days, the beach offers wonderful views of North Wales, including the peaks of the Lleyn Peninsular and Snowdonia.

Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach. Toilets, refreshments and other facilities on the pier, parking. Lifeguard service provided 18 June to 4 September 2016. Dogs not allowed May to end September.
