About 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.
The town, with its full range of shops and services and other attractions including the camera obscura, castle ruins and the National Library of Wales, is a short walk away. Aberystwyth is an excellent base for both coastal and inland walking.
The town is the starting point for two combined walking and cycling trails, the 34km Ystwyth Trail and the 28km Rheidol cycleway. Some sections of the former are suitable for wheelchair users. A stunning coastal walk from National Trust owned ex monastic grange at Mynachdy'r Graig runs alongside scenic Cardigan Bay giving fine views of Cardigan island and Bardsey island, the Llyn Peninsular and Snowdon to the north.
Seaside Award beach. Toilets, refreshments, parking.
Aberystwyth LIfeboat Station was established in 1861 and was the first station ever to have an inshore lifeboat. The station has received 13 awards for gallantry.
