Events at this Venue


Aberporth, a pretty coastal village, shelters two beautiful sandy beaches named Dolwen and Dyffryn. Low tide comes complete with little rock pools on the sandy beach where children gather for hours of entertainment.

Alternatively, the cliff top walks above Aberporth offer extensive views out to sea making it a perfect spot to watch the Bottlenose dolphins that can often be seen close to shore. Orcas and harbour porpoises have been also been spotted whilst Sunfish and basking sharks are offshore visitors in summer. Until the early 20th century, Aberporth was the centre of the bustling herring fishing industry; today there is crab and lobster fishing on a small scale.

Dolwen - Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach. Toilets, refreshments, shops, parking. Lifeguard service provided 18 June to 4 September 2016. Dog restrictions to areas of the beach May to end September.

Dogs are welcome throughout the year on the northern beach area, known as Dyffryn beach (see the downloadable pdf map, on the right, for details), whilst dogs can visit Dolwen beach between September and mid June.
