Nestled between Cardigan and Aberystwyth and on the west coast of Wales, the idyllic coastal town of New Quay is a seaside haven. The picturesque village is home to several stunning beaches and a sheltered harbour which makes Newquay one of the best places to visit on the Cardigan Bay coastline for all seafaring activities. So, where is New Quay, Wales?
Where is New Quay, Wales?
New Quay is found in the Ceredigion area of West Wales and the town is set along both the Ceredigion Coast Path and The Cardigan Bay Heritage coastline, a site of breathtaking natural beauty and astounding scenic views. If you are looking for the perfect location for a coastal getaway in Wales, or within the UK in general, then Newquay is the place to visit. The surrounding area is widely recognised as an area of significant importance for marine wildlife, including seals, dolphins, porpoises and New Quay’s resident pod of bottleneck dolphins; a rare spectacle indeed to be found in the UK. The Cardigan Bay area boasts a population of over 250 dolphins along its 60 miles of coastline, making the odds of spotting a dolphin whilst on a walk along the beach or out on a boat trip extremely high.
Despite New Quay’s growing popularity as a popular tourist destination, New Quay remains a traditional fishing town with a rich heritage and well-preserved natural beauty. The town beautifully strikes the balance between offering all the necessary local amenities to cater to the many holiday-goers that descend annually and maintaining its identity as a rural, picturesque fishing town, nestled into the Ceredigion coastline.
