The Coastal Way

The Coastal Way runs the entire length of Cardigan Bay. It’s a 180-mile (290km) odyssey that threads between blue seas on one side and big mountains on the other. It's a great location for a road trip, short break or an epic weekend away. 

From Aberdaron to St Davids, the coast is dotted with harbour towns and resorts, fishing villages and secret coves. There are vast stretches of sand, towering cliffs, and beaches of all kinds in between.

There are plenty of loops and byways to explore: the north coast of the Llŷn Peninsula, Snowdonia, Pumlumon, Preseli… endless ways to discover your own secret places.
