Images Cwmtydu - Seal Bay - Beach
- Cwmtydu - a perfect picnic spot below the old
lime kiln or why not walk out the first half mile to the stunning views
across to the Lleyn peninsula. The walk is steep to start but soon levels
to give you a clear view of the path ahead, dropping into tiny coves
and up again onto the cliff paths,
- Seal Bay - The autumn months are
the best to see the young seal pups (please do not approach them), but mature seals can often be seen basking
in the sea. This stretch of the coastline is little walked and it is also possible
to see adders sunning themselves on the pathway.
- Bird Rock - A site of special scientific
interest with colonies of nesting birds.
- Coastguard Station - at most times
of year the path here is full of wild flowers from thrift early in the
year to sea campion in the summer.
- New Quay - Here you can enjoy welcome
refreshments overlooking the sea or the chance to take a boat
trip to see seals and dolphins. From the town follow the road uphill
to a large public house at Penrhiwllan and here turn right to follow
the lane to Coybal Farm.
- Byrlip - The pathway runs alongside
the larger house and towards the duckpond with stunning views across
to the sea. An old green lane then leads to your left and into Byrlip
woods, at the right time of year full of snowdrops, wood anemones and
a waterfall set deep in the woods. The path is then sign posted back
The wild life, flora and fauna of Cardiganshire Coast and Country are truly remarkable. Red Kites and Buzzards soar above whilst Dolphins and seals swim in the bay. Otters rare orchids and hundreds of other plants, birds and animals are all here of you to experience and enjoy.
