This stunning region of Wales is celebrated for its strong Welsh culture, magnificent blue flag beaches and the local Dolphins that live in the waters of Cardigan Bay.
Looking out across Cardigan Bay to the west and backed by the Cambrian Mountains to the east, Ceredigion is ideally located for holidaymakers who want to experience both the splendors of the sea and the majestic beauty of the Welsh countryside. With stunning beaches, charming harbour villages like Tresaith, Gwbert, Aberaeron and New Quay, and lively towns like Cardigan, Aberystwyth, Tregaron and Lampeter, this part of Wales has plenty to see and do and in all the towns and villages you will be able to book holidays and short breaks all year round.
Running from Bardsey Island on the Lleyn Peninsula right down to St David’s in Pembrokeshire, Cardigan Bay also runs the full length of West Wales. The coastal path takes in Victorian resorts like Aberystwyth, wild, unspoiled beaches like Borth, tiny port villages such as Llangrannog and many other hidden gems that are just waiting to be discovered. New Quay’s most famous former resident, Dylan Thomas, attracts many visitors who are keen to follow the Dylan Thomas Trail around the town, which is thought to have provided the inspiration for the fictional town of Llareggub, in Under Milk Wood. Boat trips are available from the harbour in New Quay, taking visitors out to see seals, dolphins, porpoises and marine birds. However, if you prefer to keep your feet firmly on dry land, you still stand a very good chance of spotting dolphins here, as these friendly creatures routinely swim alongside New Quay’s harbour walls.
Foodies are in for a treat in this part of West Wales, as it is home to a wide range of artisan food producers and excellent restaurants. St. Dogmael’s weekly market has previously won the ‘Best Market’ award in the BBC Food and Farming Awards and is packed with stalls selling all sorts of delicious treats, whilst Cardigan is home to a number of specialist food stores and other producers. If you’re in Aberaeron enjoying a short break, do try out the local specialty - honey ice cream. In terms of restaurants, visitors can find quality offerings to suit every taste and budget. Try Pizzatipi, for stone-baked pizzas cooked to order on an outdoor terrace next to Cardigan Castle, or Pysgoty in Aberystwyth for sensational fish and seafood served in a harbourside restaurant that has some of the best views in the county. In Llandysul, The Daffodil Inn serves excellent modern British dishes in a charming pub restaurant, whilst over at Aberaeron, The Harbourmaster is a popular choice. Wherever you roam you are sure to find enticing holiday accommodation.
West Wales boasts several historic sites that all make for a spectacular day out.

Book your next West Wales short breaks and holidays and visit all of these destinations.
