Section 6 - total distance 17km (10.6 miles) Llanrhystud to Aberystwyth
Grade - moderate / hard

With no settlements between these locations and with 'feeder paths' being few and far between, this is one of the least walked sections of the Ceredigion Coast Path. Despite being challenging this section of Heritage Coast is dramatic, lonely and extremely worthwhile.

Penderi Cliffs
Highlights of this section of the coastpath include the 'hanging oak woodlands' of Penderi Cliffs. The main species of tree growing here is the sessile oak though there are also other species including the small-leaved lime. Normally tall canopy trees, here they have been stunted by the strong sea winds. Nonetheless they still provide shelter for an array of woodland plants. These cliffs are also an important habitat and breeding ground for a wide variety of seabirds.
