Mwnt

Owned by the National Trust, the headland of Mwnt overlooks a sheltered sandy beach. Short circular cliff top walks, a remote family beach, a 13th century church and a wealth of history make this a beautiful destination for visitors especially during the summer months. Mwnt is historically important as the site of an important 13th century battle against the invading Flemish. The site was also on the route of early Celtic Christian pilgrimages. The striking prominence of Foel-y-Mwnt and the high sheer cliffs to the south make Mwnt one of the most valued scenic vistas in west Wales. Frequent sightings of bottlenosed dolphins, seals and porpoise. Short cliff top walks with spectaular views.

Aberporth

The picturesque village resort of Aberporth overlooks two sandy beaches and is one of Ceredigion’s favourite holiday destinations. Rock pools are exposed at low tides and the cliff top walks along the Ceredigion Coast offer amazing views.
