Aberaeron has a long history as a fishing port with many local people supplementing their income by fishing for herring during the season.
There are a good selection of guest houses, self catering cottages & excellent restaurants. The great classic architect John Nash who built the near by Llanerchaeron mansion was reputedly involved in the planning of the new town.
Aberaeron is becoming something of a foodie delight. Enjoy a stroll around the harbour along Quay Parade, and enjoy lunch or afternoon tea at The Hive on the Quay or the award winning Cellar Restaurant & Bar– The Best Restaurant In Wales 2019. The excellent restaurant – The Harbour Master is situated on the harbour with views of the colourful houses across the water.
At high tide, the beach is a narrow strip at the head of the inlet but at low tide the harbour is completely dry with the exception of a stream that runs down the middle of the harbour, providing hours of entertainment catching fish, shrimp & crabs.
If you head down the beach towards the mouth of the inlet a large stretch of sand is revealed with plenty of rock pools and caves to explore. The bathing here is very shallow and very good for small children.
Along the harbour is a cafe at the Boat Club & at the head of the inlet there are other eateries available. In the village there are an array of small shops to explore & at the far end opposite the road bridge, check out the Cambrian Pub.
Tenby is a harbour town and resort in southwest Wales. It’s known for its 13th-century town walls and its stretches of sandy shoreline, including Castle Beach. The ruins of Tenby Castle are on a headland overlooking the harbour. Exhibits at Tenby Museum and Art Gallery include a 16th-century wrought-iron cannon. The Tudor Merchant’s House recreates domestic life in 1500, with a merchant’s shop and working kitchen.
It gets very busy during the summer months & the centre car parks are not cheap, around £7 half day. However, the beaches are fantastic & loads to explore in the town, so well worth a visit.
