Cwmtydu Beach – the place to see the seals
The small cove of Cwmytydu in it’s deep wooded valley is surrounded by high pastures where you may well see wild ponies. The restored lime kiln marks the back of the beach which is commonly supposed to have been used for smuggling. A number of cafés and lovely cliff walks make Cwmtydu popular with walkers, and the beach is easy to access for launching kayaks. The Ceredigion Coast Path drops down into Cwmtydu by descending along the valley side and then returning to the coast to climb up towards New Quay.
The beach and coves around Cwmtydu are a popular place for seals to rear their pups, it is important to stay clear of the pups and keep dogs away from them especially in September and October when the mothers may by out at sea waiting for the area to be clear before bringing food to the seal pup. The can be observed from the coast paths and even the car park.
