The run down seaside town of Aberporth has two adjoining bays, neither of which are partiularly attractive or good for 'forces-of-nature sports. People do windsurf and kitesurf here, but it isn't the best location around for such sports. The surf can be OK too, but once again there are better spots in the local vicinity.
There are plenty of places to stay in Aberporth and it has all the usual amentities expected from a seaside town.
Aberporth is one of Cardigan Bays favourite holiday locations. In warm weather it attracts quite a few people. Rock pools are exposed at low tide providing an opportunity for kids (of all sizes) to explore the marine life. The cliff top walks around Aberporth are nice with paths along Ceredigion's Heritage Coast.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and there are dog restrictions during the summer too.
There is also a weather bouy stationed at Aberporth, which can be a useful indicator of the weather and wave conditions in Cardigan Bay.
