Located in Mid Wales, one town on the Wales Coast Path and the Coastal Way has been named the best seaside town in Wales. With plenty to do and even wildlife-spotting an option, this Welsh town is a true gem.

More than 40,000 Which? readers voted to find the best seaside towns around the UK.

While the overall winner was Bamburgh, the Welsh winner was Aberaeron.

On the Ceredigion coast, Aberaeron is not as easily accessible as the Pembrokeshire coast towns.

The Georgian-influenced town’s harbour and its colourful houses have been rated five-star by Which? readers.

There are 248 listed buildings in the town and walking around the jewel-coloured streets is a treat, but there is much more to do in Aberaeron.

Britons interested in history can follow the river Aeron to National Trust’s Llanerchaeron.

The estate has been left largely untouched since its construction in the 18th century and is a fantastic example of a self-sufficient farm complex.

“Very atmospheric.”

Aberaeron is a great step off point for the exploration of Cardigan Bay.

There are only two places on the British coast where bottlenose dolphins can be spotted, and Cardigan Bay is one of them.

Holidaying Britons have the best chance of spotting the dolphins during summer right through to October.

Many boat companies offer dolphin tours and dolphin-spotting is a popular activity on the Ceredigion coast.

Back on land, visitors to the town of Aberaeron can take advantage of the array of independent shops.

Foodies should head to The Cellar, which was voted the Best Restaurant in Wales in 2019.

On Tripadvisor, user DawndX said: “Simply the best!

Reading wonderful reviews about this award-winning restaurant, we booked well ahead of our staycation to this scenic area of Wales. We were so glad that we did.

“This restaurant is a must do if you’re in the area and highly recommended.”

Aberaeron’s honey ice cream is also getting rave reviews.

Sarah L said of honey ice cream from The Hive: “I have never had better ice cream in my life.”
