Sunny Beaches and Relaxing Moments

Imagine waking up to the sound of waves gently lapping the shore, the salty sea breeze in the air, and golden sands just waiting for you to dig your toes in. Aberporth is home to two gorgeous Blue Flag beaches:

  • Traeth y Dyffryn (Dyffryn Beach): This spacious beach is perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and building the ultimate sandcastle. With lifeguards on duty during the summer, you can relax and enjoy your day knowing that safety is a priority. The best bit about this beach is that it is dog friendly all year round so your furry friend can join in on the fun.
  • Traeth y Dolwen ( Dolwen Beach): A cosy cove that’s ideal for a more intimate beach experience, which restricts dogs from May 1st to September 30th each year. Bring along a net and a bucket ready to explore the rock pools at low tide.

If you’re not one for lounging on the sand, Aberporth’s beaches offer ideal conditions for a variety of watersports including:

  • Bodyboarding
  • Paddleboarding

You can rent paddleboards from FOSUP and kayaks from The Water’s Edge Cafe right on the beach.
