Things to do at Borth Beach Review
8 miles north of Aberystwyth, the longest beach in Ceredigion lies in between bog and dunes. It’s popular with families due to the shallow waters.
Type of beach: Sand/Shingle depending on the tide.
Attractions: At low tide, at certain parts of the year, the petrified forest is revealed and with it the legend of Cantre’r Gwaelod rises. The small village also hosts an Animalarium and if it’s raining you can visit the converted chapel cinema in Libanus.
Parking: free, roadside parking availability depends on the time of year. Or take the train from Aberystwyth.
Food: Several cafes and pubs line the seafront.
Toilets: One next to Borth Lifeboat station and one opposite Cambrian Terrace.
