Aberporth

Aberporth is a picturesque village situated just six miles north of Cardigan on the Ceredigion coastline in West Wales. The charm and friendly atmosphere of this seaside village, along with its two golden sandy beaches, make Aberporth a desirable destination for holiday makers during the summer months.

The beaches at Aberporth have been awarded the European Blue Flag status and provide the perfect location for sunbathers, swimmers, and canoeists. Low tide also provides the opportunity for children to explore the rock pools. Both beaches are equipped with life buoys, whilst the southern-most beach is normally patrolled by a lifeguard during the summer school holiday period.

Aberporth also offers an ideal base for walkers wishing to explore the Ceredigion Coast Path which stretches southwards to Cardigan and northwards to the beaches of Tresaith, Penbryn, Llangrannog, and New Quay. The path offers spectacular cliff top views across Cardigan Bay and the opportunity to spot bottle-nosed dolphins and grey seals which frequent these waters in the summer months. The first section of the recently improved path to Tresaith is wheelchair friendly and features a number of railway carriage holiday homes dotted along the landscape.

Aberporth’s maritime history dates back to the 16th century when it became an active port for cargoes of salt, coal, and limestone. Up until the decline of fish stocks around the time of the First World War, Aberporth’s main fishing industry was based on daily catches of herring. Today fishing continues in Aberporth on a smaller scale, with lobster and crab being the catches of choice.

Two small car parks can be found overlooking the north and south beaches, with further parking available in the village. The public conveniences are located just below the beachside car park and offer facilities for disabled visitors.

Overlooking the northern beach in Aberporth you will find a beachside shop, café, and pub. Further into the village on the B4333 you will also find a pharmacy, laundrette, food store, take away selling Chinese meals as well as fish and chips, and an Indian restaurant and take away at the Morlan Hotel. Situated on the outskirts of Aberporth is the popular Gardd Y Nos restaurant. The local community is also well-served by a primary school, village hall, and St. Cynwyl’s Church.

Located to the south of Aberporth on a former RAF base is the technology park, ParcAberporth, which acts as a testing centre for unmanned aerial vehicles.
