Ceredigion offers some of the most beautiful coastal scenery anywhere: a place to be at one with nature – to stand on the cliff path and breathe in that pure sea air is the best medicine anyone could ask for!
Inland areas range from lush river valleys to undulating pasture and wild mountain landscapes.
Ceredigion is a walkers' paradise with mile upon mile of glorious seascape where dolphins, porpoises and grey seals may be spotted, not to mention the many marine birds - including kittiwakes and razorbills - colonising the cliffs.
The lush green landscapes of the river valleys are wonderful for walking and fishing - the rivers here are rich with sea trout (sewin) and salmon. The heather-cloaked moorlands and mountain forests are laced with walk and bike trails and you can see the dramatic spectacle as Red Kites circle overhead before swooping down for their daily feed at one of several Red Kite feeding stations in the Cambrian Mountains area.
From north to south, the main coastal towns in Ceredigion are Aberystwyth , Aberaeron and Cardigan with many villages dotted along the coastline between them. Cardigan Bay has one of the most concentrated collections of award-winning sandy beaches in the UK. The university town of Lampeter is the largest inland settlement.
Water sports and boat trips are activities to be enjoyed in the area, offering opportunities for all levels of ability and ages, including coasteering, surfing, kayaking and climbing to name but a few.
Lunch at The Hive, Aberaeron, where there is also a fantastic fishmonger – if you’ve never tasted freshly caught sewin, now’s your chance!
Take a boat trip from New Quay to spot dolphins.
