Mwnt

The ancient parish of Mwnt is named after the steep conical hill which rises above a beautiful sandy cove on the Ceredigion coast, approximately 5 miles north-west of Cardigan. Visitors able to climb to the top of the hill at Mwnt are rewarded with panoramic views along the coastline to Cardigan Island in the west and Ynys Lochtyn in the east. Nestled below the headland, lies the Church of the Holy Cross. This quaint white-washed church dates back to the 13th century and continues to hold regular services for the parishioners of Mwnt.

The sheltered sandy cove at Mwnt is popular among families, sunbathers and swimmers during the summer months, although not patrolled by a life guard. The rocks and cliffs surrounding the beach and headland are popular among sea anglers, with mackerel, bass, Pollack and eels on offer.

Mwnt also provides an ideal base for walkers wanting to explore the Ceredigion Coast Path, stretching westwards to Cardigan, and eastwards to Aberporth and Llangrannog. The path from Mwnt to Aberporth offers truly tranquil walk with the opportunity to spot the porpoises, bottle-nosed dolphins, and grey seals which frequent these waters. Bird watchers can also enjoy looking for Chough, Peregrine Falcons, Stone Chat and seabirds.

Parking is available for a small charge in the National Trust car park located in the field above the beach. The public conveniences can be found above the beach where there is also a small shop and café that opens during the summer season.

Access to the beach at Mwnt is down a series of steep steps making it unsuitable terrain for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
