Aberporth is a small Welsh village on the southern edge of Cardigan Bay. Visitors are attracted by the fabulous beaches and access to the stunning Wales Coastal Path. You will find visitors sunbathing and playing on the golden sands or launching boats to enjoy the fresh water. There are pleasure boats, sailing boats, kayaks and canoes. You will also probably see fishermen unloading crate after crate of giant spider crabs and other seafish. In the 17th and 18th centuries herring were plentiful in Cardigan Bay so Aberporth had at least 20 full time herring smacks. Now it is mainly crab and lobster fishing. You will find rock pools exposed at low tide and the cliff top walks along the Cerdeigion coast boast extensive views as far as the Lleyn Peninsula. You will find a few shops, cafes and a friendly pub. There is a wonderful carving of a leaping dolphin overlooking the beach. Bottlenose dolphins are frequently seen close to shore in Aberporth, hence the carving.
The Wales Coast Path is well established with clear signing and spectacular walking, especially from Cardigan to Borth. From Aberporth you may just want to walk along the cliffs to Tresaith or you may want to take the circular walk. There are seaside saunters along the fronts of coastal towns and villages, literary trails such as the Dylan Thomas Trail around New Quay, delightful strolls along country lanes bordered with ancient hedgerows full of wild flowers, invigorating walks across wild headlands enjoying stunning views of the rugged Cardigan Bay coastline, challenging mountain hikes in the remote uplands of the Cambrian Mountains or slow riverside rambles along the Teifi, Aeron Rheidol and Ystwyth valleys. Cardigan Bay has a number of useful little buses if you do not want to drive.
There are some amazing cycle routes around Cardigan Bay. You can hire cycles from New Image Bikes, Cardigan if you do not want to take your own.
One of the favourite places to canoe is along the River Teifi. At 79km it is one of the longest rivers in Wales, starting at Teifi Pools high up near Tregaron. The section from Llechryd Bridge to the mouth of the river at Poppit Sands is tidal so it makes a wonderful half day canoe trip if there is enough water. You must check the tides. Surfing is popular in Aberporth, Poppit Sands and Llangrannog.
