Aberystwyth Marina

165 BERTHS LOCATED ON THE BEAUTIFUL COASTLINE OF WEST WALES

The location of Aberystwyth Marina, in a historic university town, ensures there are a range of cultural, active and educational activities within close proximity to the marina for berth holders to benefit from.

Aberystwyth has a range of cafes, seaside fish and chip shops, restaurants, pubs and bars, many a short walk from the marina. The seafront, Promenade and pier is a great location for a walk and to look out over the Irish Sea.

Aberystwyth Marina offers over 160 first class berths providing safe, secure and sheltered moorings for motor boats and yachts. The marina is at the heart of the historic fishing port on the 23 acre harbour site. The area around the marina has developed rapidly over the past decade into a commercial and residential centre with the marina adding to this popular setting.

Aberystwyth Marina Plan

Berth holders can explore the beautiful COUNTRYSIDE surrounding the town.

The town’s picturesque promenade is dominated at its northern end by Constitution Hill, which has the longest electrical powered Funicular Railway in the UK with some spectacular views of the town and surrounding countryside. There are many walks and cycle tracks in and around the town and the 52 mile Ceredigion Coastal Path passes through the marina. In addition the 21 mile Ystwyth Trail offers some fantastic panoramic views of the Ceredigion countryside whilst connecting Aberystwyth with Tregaron in the northern Teifi Valley. Nearby you can also enjoy Devil’s Bridge, a quiet village just outside Aberystwyth famous for its waterfalls and three stacked bridges.

Aberystwyth is home to the oldest of the Welsh universities founded in 1872. It now has some 10,000 students who almost double the population of the town during term-time. The town is also the location of the National Library of Wales, established in 1911. It houses over 8 million books, thousands of manuscripts and has archives housing maps, photographs, films and music. In addition, Aberystwyth Arts Centre is Wales’ largest arts centre and is recognised as a ‘national flagship for the arts’.
