Mwnt Beach Cardigan Bay

Mwnt Beach Cardigan Bay by Janet BaxterPhoto Mwnt Beach Cardigan Bay - Janet Baxter

Mwnt is a sheltered sandy cove, owned by the National Trust. This popular beach is off the beaten track but can still get busy in the height of summer. The steep steps leading to the beach make it unsuitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. There is parking in a field above the beach. Swimming conditions are considered safe at Mwnt but there is no lifeguard service here. A well-trodden path circles Foel y Mwnt, leading to the top of the hill which overlooks the beach. The Ceredigion Heritage Coastal Path passes close by.
