Aberarth Beach - Dyfed

© John Lucas and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

The small fishing village of Aberarth lies on the remote Ceredigion coast, between Cardigan and Aberystwyth. The shingle and pebble beach here is interspersed with groynes and backed by grasslands. Parts of the beach feature low-rise clay cliffs. At low tide, some areas of coarse sand are exposed.

The Ceredigion Coastal Path and the Wales Coastal Path both pass nearby and the beach is used by walkers, surfers and sea anglers. This part of the coast is a good place to spot bird life including chough, stonechat and even the occasional peregrine falcon.

The village has limited facilities, but everything you might want , including pubs, seafood restaurants and shops can be found in Aberaeron, about one mile south-west of the beach.
