Tresaith

The picturesque coastal village of Tresaith is situated 8 miles from Cardigan along the Ceredigion coast line in West Wales. The village features a dramatic cliff top waterfall where the river Saith cascades down onto the golden sandy beach below.

The translation of the Welsh name ‘Tresaith’ is ‘town of seven’, which is believed to originate from the tale of seven Irish sisters. According to local legend, there was once an Irish King who, in despair of his seven troublesome daughters, cast them adrift on an open boat out onto the Irish Sea. The boat was said to beach at Tresaith, where the seven princesses fell in love and married seven sons of local Welsh families, hence the name the town of seven.

Tresaith is located on the Ceredigion Coast Path which offers walkers 60 miles of unspoilt coastline, with excellent views across Cardigan Bay. The recently improved footpath to the south of Tresaith provides a scenic route to Aberporth (2 miles), whilst to the north, a steeper more challenging trail leads to the golden sands of Penbryn (1.6 miles). For wildlife lovers, Tresaith is an ideal place to spot a variety of seabirds as well as bottle-nosed dolphins and grey seals which are popular visitors during the summer months.

The sheltered sandy beach makes Tresaith a popular destination among locals and holiday makers on warm sunny days. Being awarded the European Blue Flag status, the beach is an attractive location for swimmers, canoeists, and surfers alike. The beach is equipped with life buoys and is normally patrolled by a lifeguard during the months of July and August. Tresaith is also a popular sailing location, equipped with a slipway and home to the Tresaith Mariners Sailing Club. Races can often be seen taking place on Sundays during the sailing season.

Beachside facilities at Tresaith include a shop and café serving refreshments and ice creams. For diners wishing to take in the sea view, The Ship Inn serves excellent food and has plenty of tables outside on the sun terrace overlooking the beach. The public conveniences are located close to the beach and have wheelchair access and baby changing facilities. A car park can be found on the right of Ffordd Tresaith as you come into Tresaith from Aberporth. Steps leading down to the beach can be found by the bus stop further down the road. Limited parking is also available on the beach front, including a few spaces for disabled drivers.
