This is the closest beach to Penlan Coastal Cottages, situated between the seaside towns of Cardigan and Aberaeron and is always a favourite with our guests as it is so protected. There is blue flag status and lifeguards are on duty in the summer months. There is car parking, toilets, a pub and a wonderful fish and chip shop. A coastal walk from Aberporth to Tresaith, where dolphins and seals are often spotted gives fantastic views across Cardigan Bay.
Situated between the coastal villages of Aberporth and Llangrannog, this sheltered sandy beach is wonderful for families. There is a waterfall which tumbles over the cliff and a wealth of rock pools to explore. There is limited parking near the beach. Toilets, a beach café/shop and a pub are all available. A meal or drink in The Ship Inn watching the sun go down over Cardigan Bay is not to be missed.
Again, a sandy, sheltered beach with lifeguards available in the summertime. Situated about six miles from Penlan Coastal Cottages, near to Newquay. Limited parking near the beach but there is parking in the upper part of the village with a shuttle service operating in the summer . Toilets are available and two pubs and two cafés so plenty of choice for food and refreshments. It is possible to join the Ceredigion Coastal Path from here.
Owned by the National Trust, this beach is almost a mile long and is completely unspoilt with no buildings or development allowed. The car park is about 400 yards away from the beach where there are toilets and food available.
Heading on the coast road towards Cardigan is this lovely little beach. Very protected, but a little difficult to access with steep steps. There is plenty of parking above the beach and toilets and a small café are available in the summer. There is a walk around the headland above Mwnt beach with is part of the Ceredigion Heritage Coast and has an abundance of coastal plants and flowers and a variety of seaside birds to spot. There is a beautiful whitewashed 15th century church on the site with is featured in much of the local artwork.
Just below Cardigan, as you enter the northern part of Pembrokeshire is a large sandy beach at the mouth of the Teifi estuary. Plenty of parking, toilets and a lovely café are all available and a RNLI lifeboat station has a small shop on the beach. Plenty of sand dunes to explore and there are lifeguards in the summer. Poppit is the beginning of the 186 mile long Pembrokeshire Coast Path which ends in Amroth.
