Aberaeron Surf Guide

Aberaeron in Mid Wales is a reasonably exposed beach and point break that has unreliable waves. Winter and spring are the best times of year to visit. Offshore winds blow from the east southeast. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell angle is from the southwest. The beach break provides left and right handers and there is also a left hand point break. Best around mid tide. When it's working here, it can get crowded. Pollution may be a hazard at this break.
