Plan Your Stay on Cardigan Bay

Mwnt Beach Cardigan Bay

Mwnt beach is a sheltered sandy cove, owned by the National Trust. This popular beach is off the beaten track but can still get busy in the height of summer. The single track road leads over a cattle grid as the view opens up below over Cardigan Bay. The steep steps leading to the beach make it unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs, but the refreshment booth can still be reached. There is parking in a field above the beach. Although swimming conditions are considered safe at Mwnt but there is no lifeguard service here. A well-trodden path circles Foel y Mwnt, leading to the top of the hill which overlooks the beach. The Ceredigion Heritage Coastal Path passes along the cliff behind the beach.

The tiny white church is thought to be 14th century though the font could well be 12th or 13th century above the beach at Mwnt . It provides a useful landmark on the coast path and the path to the top of the hill passes alongside it. The interior is simple and peaceful and well worth a visit.
