ABERAERON

Aberaeron is a colourful Gerogian harbour town halfway up Cardigan Bay. It is well-known for its fresh fish and long history as a fishing port. Many locals supplement their income during the high season by fishing.

The town most has a charm of its own and every August, a fish festival is held here with people coming from all over to sample the fresh, local produce on offer from Cardigan Bay crab to mouth-watering lobtser.

Aberaeron is a hub for local rural communities and is a very popular tourist destination for its laid-back and slow pace. During warmer months, the streets are bustling and popular restaurants such as the Harbourmaster and The Hive are in full swing.

It’s no secret that The Hive creates a buzz in the town for another reason – if you love ice cream and honey, a visit to The Hive is a must to sample their very own honey ice cream! Fish and chips on the harbour wall and a pint at one of the locals afterwards is a fantastic way to spend an evening.

Long walks can be had along the pebble beach or for those looking to discover some jaw-dropping wildlife, head to the Ceredigion Coast Path and keep your eyes peeled for the dolphin pods who frequent the seas of Cardigan Bay.

Further afield you’ll find the National Trust site of Llanerchaeron where there are lovely woodland walks. You could easily spend hours wandering the woods and walled garden before heading back to Aberaeron to out your feet up for the evening.
