Famed for its marine wildlife and wonderful beaches, there’s more to this region than a truly dramatic section of the Wales Coast Path

Jagged, rocky coastline, pretty fishing villages and sublime sandy bays characterise the stretch of coastline from New Quay down to Cardigan, where Ceredigion meets the Pembrokeshire border.
Marine wildlife is plentiful here, particularly if you visit in the summer months when seeing a pod of dolphins is commonplace. But there’s so much more to this beautiful region than just its coastline. In Route 3, for instance, we visit Teifi Marshes Nature Reserve. This is a magnet for wildlife, attracting plenty of wildfowl and waders, as well as otters, frogs, toads and snakes. And don’t be surprised if you spot water buffalo during your time here – they often graze parts of the reserve.
