Constitution Hill

Constitution Hill | From Clarach Bay to Aberystwyth

🥾 Distance 2.7km (1.7 miles)

A favourite of visitors to Clarach Bay! The walk to Aberystwyth over Constitution Hill gives you spectacular views from this beautiful section of the Welsh Coastal Path. On a clear day, you can take in the entirety of Cardigan Bay stretching from the Llŷn Peninsula to Fishguard in the south. There’s even a cafe on the top, so you can grab a tea as you survey this beautiful landscape.

Even better, the other side of the hill is serviced by a funicular railway, so you can cut out the descent into Aberystwyth, and the hardest part of the walk home!
