Aberarth has a pebble and rock beach which can hold some really nice waves in a decent groundswell. There tends to be two peaks, both of which break over small reefs formed by old pebble walled fishing traps. Both peaks break left and right and Aberarth is the best right-hander (in my opinion) along this stretch of coastline. Facing NNW, Aberarth isn't too badly affected by SW winds which are cross-shore and as soon as it swings slightly more southerly the wind becomes offshore. Windsurfing is also possible at Aberarth, but watch your fins on the rocks. Kitesurfing is possible too, but the beach itself isn't ideal for setting up, launching and landing.
Limited parking is available along the small roads that head to the sea from the main A487 in Aberarth. Local shops and B&B is available in Aberarth.
