Beach:Aberaeron South Beachadd to shortlist

Beach, free entry

SA46 0BE



Aberaeron South Beach is a rock and shingle beach just to the south of the town and harbour.

The beach is traditionally a good place to spot the bay’s porpoise population at sea on warm days, together with spectacular views down the coast and the southernmost part is a great favourite for experienced surfers and body boarding.

Aberaeron is a small coastal town which was built in 1805 around a square of elegant Regency style buildings; it has a small harbour for yachts and fishing boats.

Dog restrictions apply May to end September.

Aberaeron’s North beach is backed by a promenade which extends from the harbour; the Coast Path then runs from here to Aberarth. Travelling into Aberaeron on the A487 from Aberystwyth, turn right where signed for parking; this road ends at a car park by the promenade.
