We spent a blustery but enjoyable few days there in early May 2015.
One of the great things about Aberafon campsite is that it is right next to the beach, and not only that, you can have campfires down on the beach.
Unfortunately by the time we got around to having a campfire on the beach (due to heavy rain the day before), we had almost exhausted all our food supplies and there wasn’t much left we could cook. We improvised though 😉
Camping Fields at Aberafon
There are a number of different camping fields at Aberafon.
You can pitch right next the beach (note that some camping fields have fenced off cliffs), or you could stay in a more sheltered location further inland, nestled between trees and next to a gentle running stream.
Toilets and Showers
Toilet facilities are available across the campsite, along with fresh water.
Wifi is available too, though only at a certain location and only if you pay.
Electric Hook Up
I think we saw EHU at every pitch, so if this is something you need, there’s plenty available at Aberafon.
Campfires and BBQs
You can have BBQs if raised off the ground, but no campfires on the campsite itself. However, campfires can be had down on the beach. You can purchase wood from the campsite, which was reasonably priced at £3 for a large bag.
For the Kids
There’s a few rock pools on the beach, and plenty of stones to build stone walls. Not much in the way of sand though.
There are cliff edges at the campsite. These are fenced off.
The road down to the campsite is steep and narrow. However, this appears to be quite navigable by larger vehicles judging by the number of large caravans and motorhomes that visited the campsite.
In addition to being by the beach, there’s a boat launch into the sea that’s accessed straight from Aberafon campsite.
