Aberporth is a pretty coastal village overlooking two beautiful, sheltered, sandy beaches Dolwen and Dyffryn. Traeth y Dyffryn is a sandy Blue Flag beach and is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards between July and September. It is a firm favourite holiday destination. Little rock pools are exposed at low tides and cliff top walks above the village offer extensive views out to sea.
Bottlenose dolphins are seen frequently close to shore and orcas and harbour porpoises have been spotted. Sunfish and basking sharks are frequent offshore visitors in summer.
The Ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path at Aberporth follows the coastline south to Tresaith and has a level stretch, adapted with the less mobile in mind.
Aberporth’s Ministry of Defence range is used for testing civil rockets for atmospheric research. Nearby Parc Aberporth is a related centre of excellence in technology, especially for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
