There are two gorgeous sandy beaches in this picturesque seaside town, the smaller of which is dog friendly all year round. Try stand up paddle-boarding or take a wildlife watching boat trip from here. New Quay can get very busy in high season.
A pretty sandy beach in the sheltered bay at Tresaith is popular with families due to the good range of facilities available. Explore the rock pools, try your hand at surfing, or simply relax and watch everyone else wear themselves out.
A very pretty fishing village with a lovely sandy beach and plenty of pubs and cafes.
Cwmtydu is a small pebble beach with a seasonal café, famous for seal pups in late summer.
Climb up to the top of the hill at Mwnt for fabulous views over Cardigan Bay, then visit the beautiful white chapel on your way down to the beach.
Just cross the bay from New Quay – a long stretch of beach perfect for walking the dog. When the tide is out, walk into New Quay for a cuppa.
From the National Trust car park, stroll down to the beach through a beautiful wooded river valley to emerge from the woods onto a glorious sandy beach. When the tide is out, walk along the shore to Tresaith, or if you’re feeling energetic, take the coast path atop the cliffs. The Plwmp Tart will be waiting for you on your return with a warm welcome – it’s a café!
