Three of us in our seventies walked the coastal path from Aberaeron to New Quay on 15 November 2018. It was a glorious day and the views were magnificent. There were one or two "dodgy" areas, including unguarded steps near the waterfalls; but it was...More

Most people you speak to know the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path. Precious few seem to know about the Ceredigion Coastal Path, and I can't understand why. I've spent a good chunk of my life exploring both and Ceredigion is the equal of Pembrokeshire in my opinion,...More

It took us 2 hours exactly to walk from Aberaeron to New Quay. The hike is not too strenuous, but be aware of all the poo along the path. We managed to walk along the beach in New Quay, but the tide was on its...More

Walked the Ceredigion Coast Path over five days, very well organised by Wales Walking Holidays. Beautiful scenery, wildlife and excellent accommodation. Medium-type walk, occasional short stretches could be considered strenuous. Binoculars are useful for studying birds (red kites are common) and seals and dolphins. Water...More

We parked up in Aberaeron and walked along the coastal path to New Quay (approx 7 miles). The path is well marked but is steep in places with livestock on the cliff tops. The views are stunning. There were lots of wild flowers and butterflies...More

A really nice walk with great views but you do need to be pretty fit as their are some steep ascents and descents. I wouldn't recommend doing this walk if it's been raining as parts of it get muddy and slippy quickly making it more...More

As you approach from Aberystwyth the strata in the cliff face is amazing and it is lovely to study the geology which shows the great forces that made this path the switchback trip it is

Walked from Borth to Aberystwyth Which we were informed was about 5-6 miles. What they didn't tell us was that it is like a rollercoaster!!!! The views are stunning and on the uphill climbs you have plenty of time to stop and admire the view...More
