Aberporth to Tresaith
2 miles or 3 km
Your starting point at Aberporth, was once a busy maritime centre with a large fleet of herring fishing boats, but it’s a pretty peaceful place today. With two sheltered, sandy beaches flanked by rockpools, it’s the perfect spot for young explorers. Nearly half the route, with picnic benches at both ends is a high-quality wheelchair and pram friendly path that offers fantastic views along the coast and out over Cardigan Bay. The Bay is famous for its dolphins, which can often be seen playing among the waves (watch out for the carved wooden one at the beginning of the walk).
Building on Aberporth’s wheelchair friendly beach access and toilet facilities, the section of Inclusive Access Cliff Top Path begins at Headland place and can also be accessed from the disabled bays of the Brynseiol Chapel (now converted to residential accommodation) car park off Heol y Graig, all of which lie to the east of Aberporth Bay. There are wheelchair friendly picnic benches 100 metres and 1km (0.6miles) from the car park.
Follow the Wales Coast Path eastwards towards Tresaith, as it winds along the coast past a series of hidden rocky coves. While you walk, look out for birds like stonechats, meadow pipits and rare choughs, as well as colourful gatekeeper butterflies during the summer months. In Tresaith, look out for the unusual coastal waterfall that flows over the cliffs to the east of the golden sandy beach.
Nigel Nicholas, Wales Coast Path Officer highlights:
"With stunning scenery this an extremely popular family friendly cliff top path that links two charming coastal villages, with beaches, refreshments and toilet facilities. Look out for dolphins, the rare chough and the unusual waterfall at Tresaith".
