Mwnt is a sheltered sandy cove, owned by the National Trust and although it is off the beaten track it is very popular in the summer. Perfect for families, it offers safe bathing, rock pools to play in and the chance to spot seals and bottle-nosed dolphins in the bay. Birdwatchers may see Chough, Peregrine Falcons, Stone Chat and plenty of the more common sea birds. The rocks on the nearby headland are a popular fishing spot.

Many visitors take a walk around the headland of Foel y Mwnt, which is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest and part of the Ceredigion Heritage Coast to enjoy the views and the plentiful coastal plants and flowers. From here you can also join the spectacular Ceredigion Coast Path which follows a 60 mile route along the Cardigan Bay coastline.

There is a long flight of steep steps down this beach which make it unsuitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Car parking: There is a small charge for parking in the field above the beach (free to National Trust members).

Food is available from the small café during the summer season and there are shops, pubs and cafes at nearby Cardigan and Aberporth.

Toilets are open during the summer months.

Lifeguards: Swimming is considered safe at Mwnt if you keep within the bay but there is no Lifeguard service. There is an emergency telephone.

Dogs are not allowed on the beach between the 1st of May and the 30th of September.
