Section 7 - total distance 15.7km (9.8 miles) Aberystwyth to Ynys-las
This is a section of two distinct halves with Aberystwyth to Borth being a challenging yet popular section of Heritage Coast while the section between Borth and Ynys-las is completely flat, with much of it running along the edge of Cors Fochno - Borth Bog.
Aberystwyth to Clarach
Distance 2.7km (1.7 miles), grade - moderate
This short section of the coast path passes over Constitution Hill which offers extensive views of Cardigan Bay and Aberystwyth as well as a cafe and the worlds largest camera obscura. If your heading north out of Aberystwyth the cliff railway could take the effort out of a steep climb.
Clarach to Borth
Distance 5.1km (3.2 miles), grade - hard
With several big climbs this is a tough section of the coast path. At Wallog the causeway of Sarn Cynfelin can be seen stretching out to sea at low tide.
Borth to Ynys-las
Distance 7.9km (4.9miles), grade - easy
While the route past Borth runs just above the high water mark, the large number of groynes along the spectacular beach to Ynys-las force the coastpath inland. It then follows the flood embankment of the River Leri which provides views over Borth Bog. At very low tide or if you're extremely athletic it may be possible to walk the whole of this section along the beach.
