The Ceredigion region

The spectacular Ceredigion Heritage Coast area offers award-winning wide sandy beaches and secluded coves hiding between rocky headlands. There are tiny coastal hamlets, pretty seaside villages such as Llangrannog and Tresaith, and small towns like New Quay, from where you can take a boat ride in Cardigan Bay and perhaps be lucky enough to see dolphins.

With its nature reserves and marine conservation areas, the coast is home to a rich variety of wildlife, offering the opportunity for you to spot not only dolphins but porpoises, grey seals, choughs and many kinds of sea-birds.

The landscape provides a stunning backdrop for the numerous and varied walks both along the Ceredigion Coastal Path and inland. In the rolling green countryside and wooded valleys behind the coast you may see peregrine falcons, buzzards and red kites, and perhaps an otter.

There are signposted cycle routes and angling, golf, horse riding, surfing and kayaking are also popular.

The strong tradition of Welsh history and culture in this area is apparent in the attractive coastal towns of Aberystwyth, Aberaeron and Cardigan.


Cardigan is surrounded by sea and landscapes of great beauty and outstanding environmental quality. The town is centrally placed to enjoy the fabulous Heritage Coast line of Cardigan Bay stretching north into Ceredigion and south into Pembrokeshire.

Here there are miles of tranquil, unspoilt coastline with secluded sandy coves, award winning accessible beaches, towering cliffs garlanded with flowers in early summer, and islands set like jewels in clear waters where dolphins, porpoises and seals abound.

Inland the stunning landscape of the deeply wooded Teifi Valley is home to an abundance of wildlife including otters and is an anglers paradise, ranked as the best sea trout river in Europe.
