Aberaeron South Beach

Book Tickets Online


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 on the Ceredigion coast. It was built in 1805 around a square of elegant Regency style buildings and has a small harbour for yachts and fishing boats.

Aberaeron’s North beach is backed by a promenade which extends from the harbour; the Wales 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.

Dog restrictions apply May to end September.
The Harbourmaster's Office is located by the pier.
