Borth village and beaches
Shallow waters and almost three miles of golden sand makes Borth's Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach one of Ceredigion's most popular beaches with families. There's plenty of room for runners, surfers and thrill-seeking kite surfers who like to feel the sea breeze at Ynyslas too.
Clarach beach and Wallog
The sheltered aspect of Clarach makes it one of Ceredigion's most popular holiday village beaches. A short walk from Clarach is the remote beach of Wallog and the mysterious 'causeway' of Sarn Cynfelyn.
Aberystwyth's beaches and elegant seafront are a focal point for the town with a meandering, mile long promenade linking the north and south beaches, which are separated by the castle headland.
Aberystwyth, affectionately known as 'Aber', is a town with wider horizons than its rural coastline setting and relaxed lifestyle might suggest. As a university town, it's a melting pot of cultures and ideas: museums, archives and galleries reveal a depth of heritage to be discovered; superlatives abound: first, oldest, longest, best ...
Aberystwyth is an ideal base to explore the landscapes of Ceredigion the Cardigan Bay coast and the Cambrian Mountains.
Llanrhystud, Llanon, Aberarth and Aberaeron shoreline
Characterised by pebble beaches and rocky, sea eroded platforms, the central section of Ceredigion's coast between Llanrhystud and Aberaeron, to the south of Aberystwyth may appear to be undeveloped and wild, but there's a great deal of history to be discovered along the foreshore.
Aberaeron, is picture postcard pretty with colourful and graceful buildings, friendly leisure harbour and a great series of summer events. Once a busy fishing port which also saw families emigrate to the New World, Aberaeron today is one of Ceredigion's best loved towns.
New Quay village and beaches
New Quay bay has three very different, beautiful and popular beaches. Harbour Beach is New Quay's main beach, tucked below the sloping terraces of the village and sheltered from the prevailing weather by the harbour wall. A designated Blue Flag beach, with clean, clear water, a designated safe swimming area and soft, fine sand, Harbour beach is a firm favourite with families. Walk along Traeth Gwyn at low tide and you'll be following in the footsteps of Dylan Thomas.

Mwnt is an idyllic spot on the Ceredigion coast, with sweeping views across Cardigan Bay from the summit of the conical hill (Foel y Mwnt) that rises above the sheltered sandy beach. The beach itself is reached by steps alongside a tumbling stream.
Cardigan-historic former county town on the Teifi
