Cardigan Bay


Most of Ceredigion's 60 miles of coast is designated Heritage Coast. Between Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire National Parks, the coastline has many small villages, ports and small towns all having a rich seafaring history.

As well as the many clean beaches and holiday facilities including some great hotels and accommodation, there is a welcome to the boating crowd, at Aberaeron, New Quay and Aberystwyth you can make full use of the harbour facilities. There is plenty to do, some examples include the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway which takes you up Constitution Hill giving fabulous views a the top, The Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, takes you on a journey to Devils Bridge where there are some fantastic waterfalls. There are plenty of museums and art galleries and don't miss the dyfi estuary.

Cardigan Bay is full of wonderful varied wildlife, including many sea birds, butterflies, rare flowers and of course the sea life is fantastic, the resident population of bottlenose dolphins can often be seen close to shore, and if you are really lucky you might even spot a grey seal.

Cardigan Bay is a varied and beautiful area which has a great deal to offer.
