Aberaeron has a lovely harbour walk, easily accessible with wheelchairs.

Famous for the honey ice-cream available from Easter till October and fish & chip suppers on one of the many beaches overlooking the picturesque harbour on the seafront.

Crab fishing can be enjoyed off the harbour and lines can be bought cheaply in the fishing shop.

Daily cruises in a dingy go from the Sea life museum for the hardy seafarer to explore the coastal waters, and look for seals and dolphins.

The beach is pebbly and muddy: not so good for a swim. The South beach over the bridge is also pebbly but not muddy, and leads onto the coast path, which goes all the way to Newquay and Cwmtydu.

The path is to be walked with caution in some parts, because there is no fence between the path and cliff face. In some places the cliff edge has eroded to within a few feet from the path.


Cei Bach is the next beach down the coast towards Cardigan, about two miles from the coast road.

This has a small car park and is not very accessible for those with wheelchairs.

The beach is sandy and the sea is quite shallow for a long way in.

An adventure centre is based here and daily activities are available:
