Local Treasures: South Beach

Again, apologies for a remarkably late post. By the time this post airs, I’ll have left the beautiful town of Aberystwyth, the tiny town teeming with students, sunshine, and the scourge of seagulls. Admittedly, I didn’t want to write this post, as arguably it’ll be the last of the Local Treasures posts based in Aberystwyth. But then again, needs must. One of the most special places I enjoyed reading and going to during my time in Wales was the hugely popular, immensely relaxing South Beach.

Situated on the seafront of Aberystwyth just past the castle, and a five minute’s walk, South Beach is a quiet, accessible area with a variety of different landscapes to explore and to take a book to read and perch on!

There are some circumstances where the weather gets too dastardly for a simple relaxing break on the beach, one could always climb up the Pen Dinas hill situated closely to the beach. One time I remember being displeased by the rough waves, and taking my copy of The Perks of Being a Wallflower up with me to the top of the hill, and surveying the beauty from there.

Apologies for taking so long to post this update, but this is one of the final ‘Local Treasures’ posts that’ll be done for Aberystwyth. Rest assured, they’ll be more Local Treasures posts, but this was the special and final one for my quaint university town. I felt like it had to be something special.

Until tomorrow,
