Mwnt is a haven for wildlife, one of the best places in Ceredigion to spot dolphins and always popular for days out on the beach. On beautiful sunny days families flock to Mwnt to enjoy this hidden cove’s golden sand and rolling waves.
When visiting, a walk to the top of Foel y Mwnt is a must, take in the panoramic views over Cardigan Bay and see if you’re lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the mountains of Snowdonia in the distance.
Dolphins can often be seen playing in the bay, with Mwnt locally recognised as one of the best places to regularly spot them. Every summer our team of National Trust rangers host Dolphin Watch events to gather data to assist with monitoring the population.
Located on the Ceredigion coast, a few miles north of Cardigan town centre, you’ll drive down the windy country lines to be presented with dramatic views over Cardigan Bay upon arrival. To reach the beach there is a series of steps leading down to the sheltered sandy bay. You can also reach the beach by walking the local stretches of Wales’ Coastal Path.
On site facilities include the National Trust car park, toilets run by Ceredigion Council and a kiosk selling ice creams and all those little essentials you need to enjoy your day on the beach.
