Aberystwyth South Beach

Quieter than the town’s North Beach, Aberystwyth’s long South Beach is sandwiched between the town’s castle and the harbour breakwater.

Aberystwyth South Beach

Aberystwyth South beach is a Seaside Award winning beach and is patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer months. It's a sheltered sand and shingle beach and the southernmost part is a great favourite for experienced surfers and body boarding.

The beach is also traditionally a good place to spot the bay’s porpoise population at sea on warm days, together with spectacular views down the coast.

Just behind South Beach is Aberystwyth’s harbour and marina full of sailing boats and yachts. Also don't miss the fishing ships that regularly collect Cardigan Bay lobster, crab, scallops and mackerel when in season. Fishing trips for visitors are available from the harbour during the summer months.
