Aberaeron is one of Wales’s first planned towns and was once a thriving port. It is now a busy holiday centre famous for its well laid out streets and squares and brightly painted Georgian houses, but most charming of all, a stone walled harbour nowadays filled with many-coloured yachts

Aberaeon has an unappealing NW facing pebble and boulder beach. Its NW aspect means that SW winds are cross-shore making it a good place to windsurf in the prevailing winds if it weren't for the rather unsightly beach and the profusion of boulders to break fins on.

At high tides the beach is quite steeply shelving and a nasty shorebreak can develop in onshore conditions which will contribute to more broken kit.

Aberaeon is relatively sheltered from the rough seas though so waves are generally smaller than further up the coast. It does receive a certain amount of surf though and can be a good place to head when beaches further north are too big and blown out. Kitesurfing is possible here if you can launch and land your kite on the rocky beach.

Accomodation, shops and most other facilities you will need can be found in Aberaeron itself and parking is available close to the beach. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer months and there are dog restriction during the summer.
