APPROACHING aberystwyth marina

The harbour is located by Pendinas, a conspicuous hill 120m high, with the Wellington monument at its crest. The head of the north breakwater, the Wooden Jetty, on the Wellington monument leads 140 ◦, which clears you south of the Castle Rocks. The approach should be treated with caution in strong onshore winds, beware of cross-tides and boulders around head of the South Pier, the Stone Pier, and the Trap (an area of rough ground) which is to the north of the Wooden Jetty. The leading lights, both fixed reds and the white day marks on the Ystwyth Bridge, lead 133◦.

The Wooden Jetty is marked with Q WR 9m; Red Sector (141-175) which covers the Castle Rocks. The south Pier F1.(2)WG 10s 12m 10m. There are four FR (vertical) on a radio tower 2.8 miles to the south. The entrance is narrow with a 90◦ port turn inside the Wooden Jetty head. The bar is immediately outside the head of the Stone Pier; at low water springs there is about 0.7meteres on the bar when on the leading line.

Boats drawing 2.0 meters are advised to enter up to 2.0 hours before and 2.5 hours after HW in calm conditions and boats drawing up to 1.0 meters can enter 3.0 hours before and 3.5 hours after HW.

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.
