Beautiful beaches abound along the Cardigan Bay. The best of the sandy beaches which are ideal for families are New Quay, Tresaith and Llangrannog.
Penbryn (owned by the National Trust) is a lovely beach accessed on foot from the NT car park, either by a pretty woodland walk or by roadway. Cei Bach and Poppet Sands are great for dog walking while at Cwmtydu you may (between September and November) see Grey seals tending their pups on the beach
