Aberporth is a popular tourist destination on the West Wales coast just north of Cardigan and south of New Quay, with a resident population of around 2500.  Aberporth has two beautiful sandy beaches, one of which is dog free in summer. Aberporth hosts a variety of events throughout the year including a summer festival, raft race, fireworks on the beach in November, the annual boxing day swim and many more.

The All Wales Coast Path passes through Aberporth making it an ideal destination for walkers or an excellent stopover en route and it is just a few miles from Cardigan and the start of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

The Lleyn peninsula and Snowdonia can be seen across Cardigan Bay and the bay is home to a resident population of dolphins which can often be spotted from the beaches.

Aberporth started in the 16th century as a fishing village on the West Wales coast.   It developed into one of the main fishing centres and at one time up to 20 herring boats regularly put to sea.  The trade declined as fish stocks dwindled and today just a single fishing boat still operates from the beach. Now it is a popular tourist destination with two beautiful beaches and plenty of tourist accomodation and services.
