Favorite thing: I have fond memories of golden autumnal holidays in south west wales - weather still warm but beaches less crowded. Just drive down those winding country lanes and discover delightful little coves. This pic shows a favourite cove of ours -is called Llangrannog - located just south of New Quay, to the north of Tresaith. This is just typical of the beautiful coastal scenery around here. A lovely walk can be taken leading up from the village, beyond the hidden Cilborth beach and around the headland of Ynys Lochtyn - owned by the National Trust.
Favorite thing: Tresaith is a beautiful little coatal village - its most spectacular sights is this cascade of the river Saith over the cliff tops down onto the beach. A oast path links Tresaith to neighbouring Aberporth and, at low tide it is possible - with care, having first consulted the tide times - to walk along the foreshore all the way to the golden beaches of Penbryn, to the north.
Favorite thing: Aberaeron I remebeber as being a delightful place with its colourful houses on the quayside - many of its buildings are listed as being of special architectural or historical interest. A pleasant littel port with its stone walls fro protection of the water craft here - and especially its a popular centre for yachting
Ones of the most popular little beaches is a t Mwnt - although be warned access is down some steep steps. Its an idyllic sandy cove with safe bathing and rock pools. Even if you don't make it down the steps the views ffrom the top are wonderful and you can see the tiny 15th century church above the cliffs. Look out for bottle-nosed dolphins too.
To reach Mwnt from Cardigan - take the B4548 for Gwbert, after going through Gwbert head for Y Ferwig (passing Cardigan Island Farm on your left) then after about a mile look for sign to Mwnt - take care on those narrow lanes!
Newquay (not to be confused with Newquay in Cornwall) s a picturesque village, a former fishing port and haunt of smugglers. Great place for views of Cardigan Bay and boat trips can be taken from the harbour. Dylan Thomas lived in New Quay in 1944 and the Dylan Thomas Trail takes visitors to many of the places that are believed to be mentioned in 'Under the Milk Wood'.
This website provides lots of useful information for Newquay and its wlaking trails.
