Poppit Sands

Poppit Sands is a lovely large sandy beach situated alongside the River Teifi estuary as it enters the Irish Sea near Cardigan in Pembrokeshire. Sheltered by sand dunes and awarded the Blue Flag status, Poppit Sands is a popular family beach, providing children with rock pools to explore at low tide and safe swimming areas patrolled by lifeguards during July and August.

Fishing and sailing are popular pursuits among visitors to Poppit Sands, with the Teifi estuary offering good sea fishing and the Teifi Boating Club located across the estuary offering temporary membership to visiting boat owners and R.Y.A club members. The half mile of firm beach at Poppit Sands also provide the ideal playground for power kite enthusiasts.

For walkers wishing to take in the breath-taking sea views from the surrounding cliff tops, Poppit Sands offers an ideal starting point. The 186 mile Pembrokeshire Coast Path starts at St Dogmaels, passing through Poppit Sands, around the coastline to Newport Sands, and finishing at Amroth in the south. A highlight for wildlife lovers visiting Poppit Sands and the surrounding coastline of Cardigan Bay is the opportunity to spot the resident porpoises, bottle-nosed dolphins, and grey seals. Poppit Sands is also popular among dog walkers, with a large area of the beach remaining open to dogs in the summer months.

Parking at Poppit Sands is available in the car park opposite the RNLI life boat station by the beach. A café, shop and public conveniences are all located close to the car park. Two pubs, a chip shop, and Spar shop can also be found in the village of St. Dogmaels, situated 2 miles south of Poppit Sands.
