New Quay is a picture postcard town on the Ceredigion Coast Path and part of the Cardigan Bay region of Ceredigion.
It’s home to glorious sandy beaches, a sheltered harbour and is very much a traditional fishing town.
Much of its charm is down to its natural environment but the colourful buildings add to its idyllic appeal.
Days in New Quay can be spent at the beach or walking along the Ceredigion Coast Path to neighbouring villages and coves.
Dolphin spotting is probably the most popular activity and boats leave the harbour frequently in warmer months. The seas around New Quay are among the best places to spot spectacular wildlife and Cardigan Bay is home to the largest colony of bottlenose dolphins in Europe.
Seals can be seen out of season as they head to the beaches to bask with their pups. It’s very important to know that wildlife should be enjoyed from a safe distance.
Clean seas make West Wales ideal for wild swimming and New Quay is no exception. Other water-based activities include paddleboarding and kayaking. Equipment can be hired.
Pubs, restaurants, cafés and shops - everything you need during your visit can be found in the town so once you arrive, you can truly relax. No visit to New Quay is complete without a fish and chips supper sat on the harbour wall, followed by indulging in a delicious ice cream from the parlour on the hill.
