Beach, free entry

SA43 2JL



The small village of Tresaith, just to the east of Aberporth, overlooks this small sandy bay which is popular for sailing and surfing; there are rock pools to explore and a waterfall that falls over the cliffs directly onto the beach.

Facing north west, the bay is relatively small at around 250 metres wide and is popular for swimming, surfing, sailing and windsurfing as well as beach games and sandcastle building.

The picturesque village behind the beach has a shop, cafe and pub. The coastal waters and coastal belt is within the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation, confirming the high conservation status of the area.

The Wales Coast Path links Tresaith to neighbouring Aberporth and, at low tide it is possible to walk along the foreshore all the way to the golden beaches of Penbryn, to the north. Walkers often see seals and dolphins close to the shore. Penbryn, its sand dunes and surrounding woodland, is managed by the National Trust.

Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach. Toilets, refreshments, shops, limited free parking. Lifeguard service provided 10:00 - 18:00 June to September. Dog restrictions to areas of the beach May to end September.
