Aberystwyth’s North Beach and seafront is a focal point of the town and a favourite attraction for visitors and locals alike. The mile-long promenade is popular with walkers, joggers, skaters, roller-bladers, bikers – and those who just want to relax by the seaside.
Close to the town, the dark sand and shingle beach has both Blue Flag and Seaside Awards. As well as a programme of entertainment at the bandstand, there are traditional seaside treats such as donkey rides, crazy golf, and amusements at the Victorian Pier. The beach is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer months.

On clear days, the beach offers wonderful views of North Wales, including the peaks of the Llyn Peninsular and Snowdonia.

Car parking: Limited roadside parking along the promenade and car parks and street parking in the town. Disabled parking spaces on the promenade.

Food: A wide selection of food and drink available on the promenade and in the town.

Toilets and disabled toilets and showers close to the beach.

Lifeguards on duty during the summer school holidays.

Dogs are not allowed between the north side of the Landing Stage and the northern end of the beach at Craig Glais from 1st May to 30th September.
