The beaches of Aberystwyth, north and south are very picturesque situated as they are on the Victorian seafront.
Borth beach to the north of Aberystwyth and Aberaeron, New Quay and Mwnt to the South are well worth a visit as are the beaches listed on the websites listed below.
Local Activities & Attractions
Aberystwyth is the ideal centre for exploring our ancient county of Cardiganshire, now called Ceredigion. Our beaches, our hills and forests. There is something for everyone, old and young. The countryside and the town, the hills and the valleys all have something to offer. But in case you require a quiet life, our park offers an unique opportunity to sit in or outside your tent, motorhome or caravan and watch the sheep in the nearby field or enjoy a meal while you watch the sun go down over the sea. I am listing below a list of websites which I hope will help you plan your holiday. If you have any specific interest or queries, please let me know.
