Llansantffraid Beach

This predominantly shingle and pebble beach, backed by low mud and clay cliffs, lies on the Ceredigion coast, about 5 miles north east of Aberaeron. The fact that there is not much sand and the remote location ensure that the beach never gets particularly busy.

There is a short-term car park in the village of Llanon, and from here there are a number of paths leading down to the beach.  The village has a pub, a chip shop and a shop.
