Ceredigion Coast Path
This walk follows the beautiful coastline of Ceredigion from Cardigan to Borth.
The walk is waymarked with a coast and sea logo.
The route passes New Quay, Llangrannog, Aberporth, Mwnt, Aberaeron and Aberystwyth. The path includes the dune system at Ynys-las, high cliffs, storm beaches, sandy bays and sea caves. Four sections of the path are designated as Heritage Coast whilst two areas within Cardigan Bay are Marine Special Areas of Conservation. The route also includes the highest numbers of dolphin sightings in the UK - see the video below for more details.
Around Aberaeron there's the option of taking a detour inland along the River Aeron to visit the National Trust's Llanerchaeron. The Grade I listed mansion has some nice trails to follow through the attractive estate.
This area also has strong connections with the authour Dylan Thomas who lived in nearby New Quay. Around here you can pick up the Dylan Thomas trail which visits a number of local places associated with the poet.
