Perched on the hills above Cardigan Bay, New Quay is famous for its picture-book harbour, beaches and narrow terraced streets. The sheltered harbour and safe beaches are perfect for sailing, fishing, water sports and relaxation. Other attractions in the area include the abundance of nature and wildlife, with sightings of dolphins reasonably common, but also whales and seals if you know where to look for them!
We also have breath-taking scenery to explore on foot and by car, including:
