Sunny day at Aberporth Beach

Aberporth is a little seaside village on the Cardigan Bay Coastline, in Ceredigion. It has two popular golden sand beaches which are favourites with both the locals and holiday makers.

Dogs are only allowed on the beaches from September to May but are welcome on the coast path at all times of the year.

Aberporth is only a short drive from the market town of Cardigan, where there are three supermarkets, plenty of little individual shops, cafes and public houses. If you don’t fancy taking the car, there are regular bus services through Aberporth that go to Cardigan and Aberystwyth. In the summer months, there is also “Cardi Bach” which is a service bus which goes along the Cardigan Bay coastline. This bus is ideal for those who want a day out at one of the surrounding beaches, such as Mwnt, Penbryn, Llangrannog, Cwmtydu & New Quay, with-out worrying about where to park.

Ceredigion’s Heritage Coastline.
Aberporth is situated along the Ceredigion Coastal Path – part of the much larger all Wales Coast Path, which makes it easy to explore the beautiful Cardigan Bay Coastline. You may even be lucky enough to spot the Cardigan Bay bottlenose Dolphins along the way. These beautiful mammals have been celebrated in Aberporth by a local wood and stone sculptor, Paul Clarke, designing and creating a life-sized leaping dolphin sculpture, carved from Welsh Oak. This is on display at the sea front in Aberporth, and was unveiled in 2001.
