New Quay was originally a fishing village that later became a shipbuilding centre. Shipbuilding reached an all-time high in the 19th century when there were three shipbuilding centres in the region: in New Quay, Traethgwyn, and Cei-bach. Smacks, schooners, and large vessels for long-distance sailing were all made here. Fishing was a popular activity and the locals caught fish like crabs, herring, lobsters, and mackerel. It’s still a favourite pastime to this day.
The attractive harbour and lovely beach are the first things you’ll notice when you visit the town. Majority of the boats at the harbour are leisure craft but some are working boats. They traverse the Cardigan Bay coastline looking for fish, lobsters, crabs, and other edible sea creatures. The town is simply magnificent. A cluster of buildings cling to hills that rise up from a secluded harbour.
