Ceredigion, located on the western coast of Wales has much of its coastline designated as “Ceredigion Heritage Coast” covering the finest stretches of undeveloped coast in Wales. Stretching from Ceibwr Bay in Pembrokeshire to Aberarth in Ceredigion and extending almost 20km from the coast, Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation (SAC) protects the wildlife found in around 1000km2of sea. Southern Cardigan Bay is home to a rich variety of marine animals and plants, from reef-building worms to the celebrated bottlenose dolphins and porpoises. The area is home to Europe’s largest population of bottlenosed dolphins and there are few places where they are more easily seen. Ceredigion has some of the most unspoilt beaches you could ever see and also encompasses such coastal towns as Aberystwyth, Aberearon and New Quay where you can enjoy the best of Welsh hospitality.
