About

W/ales Coast Awards - Seaside Award 2024

Aberystwyth's North Beach and seafront is a focal point of the town and a favourite attraction for visitors and locals alike - and those who just want to relax by the seaside.

Close to the town, the clean, dark sand and shingle beach is accompanied by traditional seaside treats such donkey rides, bandstand entertainment and a bouncy castle and the town's Victorian Pier. Built in 1864, Aberystwyth Pier's was once some 242 metres in length but time and marine storms have seen it reduced to today's 90 metres.

The main focus of the Promenade and seafront is Marine Terrace with its Victorian and Edwardian style architecture and hotels. The promenade also features music, choirs and other performances during the summer.

Constitution Hill lies at the quieter northern end of the Promenade and features a cliff railway with the largest camera obscura in the world. On clear days, the beach offers wonderful views of North Wales, including the peaks of the Llyn Peninsular and Snowdonia.

Toilets, refreshments and other facilities on the pier, parking.

Lifeguard service provided: June - September.| Patrol times 10am-6pm

Dogs not allowed May to end September.
