North Beach is the stretch of rock and shingle beach, interspersed with wooden groynes, immediately north-east of Aberaeron’s picturesque harbour. The beach is a good spot for fishing and is also used for windsurfing.

The lovely town of Aberaeron, with its colourful Regency buildings hosts sailing regattas and a seafood festival. There are a good number of pubs and some excellent seafood restaurants. The local honey and honey flavoured ice-cream are worth trying.

There are a number of car parks in the town, including one just south-west of the harbour, by the yacht club and another at the end of Lower Regent Street right next to the shoreline.
