About Wales Coast Path | Snowdonia & Ceredigion
Following the majestic sweep of Cardigan Bay, the Snowdonia & Ceredigion section of the Wales Coast Path providers the walker with glimpses of dolphins and porpoise, seals and a host of marine birds throughout the year around.
CEREDIGION HERITAGE COAST - Suggested Walks:
From the dunes of Ynyslas a few mile north of Aberystwyth to the historic market town of Cardigan in the south, walkers experience the Ceredigion Heritage Coast with its picturesque seaside towns and villages and stunning beaches.
Please note that distances are one way unless otherwise specified. Where public transport is shown, this means that the
start and finish points are linked (timetable dependent). The use of www.traveline-cymru.info to plan your journey is recommended.
1. BORTH to ABERYSTWYTH (9.5km / 6miles)
This is an interesting and challenging section of Heritage Coast with several big climbs. The walk links up the railway stations
so that you can let the train take the strain on your return leg. (Train or Bus)
W. ABERYSTWYTH to LLANRGYSTUD (17km / 10.5miles)
With no settlements between these locations and with few feeder paths, this is one of the least walked sections of the
Ceredigion Coast Path. Despite its challenges, it is rewarding. (Bus)
3. ABERAERON to NEW QUAY (10km / 6.25miles)
This walk, between two of Ceredigion’s main coastal towns, offers spectacular cliff top views. Aberaeron is regarded as one
of the most attractive towns in Wales with a square of elegant Regency-style buildings. At New Quay, the preferred route is
along the beach, but at high tide you may have to follow the road. (Bus)
4. CWMTYDU to LLANGRANNOG (7.5km / 4.75miles)
Arguably the most spectacular part of the Ceredigion Coast Path, this section is Heritage Coast and includes the iconic
Ynys Lochtyn. Llangrannog’s lovely beach is home to Carreg Bica – a rock which, legend has it, used to be a giant’s tooth.
(Bus – certain days only)
5. ABERPORTH (1km / 0.6miles each way)
A section of path specifically designed for wheelchairs along the eastern end of Aberporth Bay with spectacular cliff top
views of the Ceredigion coastline. Aberporth is also a great place for dolphin spotting. (Bus)
6. ABERPORTH to MWNT (8km / 5miles)
A remote section of Coast Path positioned along the tops of cliffs and coastal slopes and below the fringe of agricultural
land. The tranquility and isolation of this section induces a feeling of separation from the pace of modern life.
(Bus – certain days only)
