The village of Aberporth bustles with activity in the summer. It boasts two sandy sheltered beaches with rock pools exposed at low tide. There is a small car park above the south section of the beach. Further parking can be found in the village. Swimming is considered safe here and during the school holidays - from mid-July to the end of August - Ceredigion's Beach Officer Lifeguard Service normally establishes patrolled bathing areas daily. You can enjoy circular walks from Aberporth, a short coast walk from Aberporth to Tresaith, and other walks along Ceredigion's Heritage Coast. It is possible to walk north along the coastal path to the nearby village of Tresaith.
Dolwen is a blue flag beach. Dyffryn Beach can be enjoyed with your dog.
* Dogs are prohibited from sections of certain beaches between 1st May and 30th September under the local byelaw. The restrictions do not apply to a guide dog accompanying a registered blind person.
