Most of Ceredigion's 60 miles of coast is designated Heritage Coast. Between Snowdonia and Pembrokeshire National Parks, the coastline has many small villages, ports and small towns - all having a rich seafaring history.
As well as the many clean beaches and holiday facilities, including some great hotels and accommodation, there is a warm welcome to the boating community, with Aberaeron, New Quay and Aberystwyth offering harbour facilities.
There is plenty to do, including the Aberystwyth Cliff Railway, which climbs the side of Constitution Hill, giving fabulous views from its summit. There is also The Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, which can take you on a journey to Devil's Bridge, where there are some fantastic waterfalls. There are also a number of museums and art galleries - and don't miss the Dyfi estuary.
Cardigan Bay is full of wonderful varied wildlife, including many sea birds, butterflies, rare flowers and, of course, the sea life is fantastic. The resident population of bottlenose dolphins can often be seen close to shore, and if you are really lucky, you might even spot a grey seal.
Cardigan Bay is a varied and beautiful area, with a great deal to offer.
