New Quay

The popular seaside resort of New Quay lies on the spectacular Ceredigion coastline of West Wales, situated between the towns of Cardigan and Aberystwyth. Visitors to this picturesque town can enjoy the blue flag awarded golden sandy beach which overlooks Cardigan Bay. New Quay’s sheltered harbour also offers the ideal location to spot bottle-nosed dolphins and grey seals, try your hand at crabbing, or simply enjoy some fish and chips whilst watching the sun go down.

New Quay is an excellent base for walkers, water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. The Ceredigion Coast Path passes through New Quay offering fantastic coastal walks stretching south-west to Llangrannog and north-east to Aberaeron. If you prefer to take in the coastline from the sea, boat trips are regularly run from New Quay harbour and offer the best chance to catch a glimpse of the marine wildlife. The Cardigan Bay Watersports and Sea School is based in New Quay and offers a wide range of activities including dinghy sailing, yacht cruising, power boating, windsurfing and kayaking. Back on land, the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre provides visitors with a wealth of information on the rich sea and bird life that populate this unspoilt part of Wales.

New Quay’s maritime history dates back to the mid-19th century when it developed into a thriving fishing port and centre for shipbuilding. With the introduction of railways came the demise of shipping and tourism soon became New Quay’s main industry. A highlight of New Quay’s literary history is its connection with the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas who lived in the town in 1944 and is believed to have based Llareggub ‘the cliff-perched town at the far end of Wales’ in Under Milkwood on New Quay. A film about Dylan Thomas entitled ‘Edge of Love’ starring Matthew Rhys, Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller was also recently filmed in New Quay.

Visitors to New Quay are well served by the array of gift shops, cafés, pubs and restaurants that line the pretty narrow streets. Pay and display car parks can be found on the outskirts of the town on Church Road and Towyn Road, and near the sea front at on Rock Street. Public conveniences are also located at the Church Road and Rock Street car parks.
