Award Winning Beaches

Aberporth BeachAberporth beach is the closest beach to Penlan Coastal Cottages, situated between the seaside towns of Cardigan and Aberaeron and is always a favourite with our guests as it is so protected. There is blue flag status and lifeguards are on duty in the summer months. There is car parking, toilets, a pub and a wonderful fish and chip shop. A coastal walk from Aberporth to Tresaith, where dolphins and seals are often spotted gives fantastic views across Cardigan Bay.
