Aberaeron North Beach (North of groynes)

This stretch of rocky beach, backed by a coastal path lies about half a mile north of Aberaeron harbour.  There are views along the Ceredigion coastline and out towards the Irish Sea.  The beach is used by walkers, sailing enthusiasts and fishermen. It can also be a good place for birdwatching.

The town of Aberaeron has some beautiful Regency-era buildings and plenty of craft shops and good places to eat.  The local honey is well worth a try, as is the honey ice-cream.  Each year the town hosts a seafood festival.

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.
