Aberporth is a small but bustling village resort on the Ceredigion Marine Heritage Coast, 10 miles south of New Quay. Its two beaches sit between the rocky headlands of Trecregyn and Fathgarreg, separated by a smaller rocky outcrop. The beaches are safe and sandy, with rock pools and a small stream running out onto the beach, making it ideal for children. The southern beach, Dolwen, is the most popular with families and Dyffryn, the northern beach, is used for launching sailing boats, kayaks, canoes and fishing boats. Bottlenose dolphins can often be seen swimming and diving as they follow shoals of mackerel into the bay.
You can join the Ceredigion Coast Path, which follows a 60 miles / 96 km route along the spectacular scenery of the Cardigan Bay coastline. For a shorter walk, you can try the coast walk from Aberporth to the village of Tresaith and there are circular walks from the village.
Dogs are not allowed on the southern Dolwen Beach between the 1st May and 30th September inclusive. The restrictions do not apply to guide dogs for the blind.
