Blue Flag, Seaside Award and Green Coast award winning beaches along the coastline of Cardigan Bay. Enjoy Ceredigion's popular family resort beaches and quiet secluded coves. Feel safe knowing that our most popular bathing beaches are also patrolled by RNLI lifeguards during the summer season.
Enjoying Ceredigion's beaches with your dog
Dogs are welcome on Ceredigion beaches.
Like many other beaches along the Welsh coast, there are some restrictions on access to the most popular family beaches between 1 May and 30 September, but there is always an area of beach where the whole family, including pets, can enjoy together.
Please check the beach signage before taking your dog onto the beach. Restrictions are displayed on signs close to the beach itself.
Details of areas subject to dog restriction byelaws and the areas where dogs can access the beach are also shown on the maps on individual beach pages.
Click on the pins on the map below to identify each beach location, or scroll down the beach listing to select a beach.
It's fun to explore the beach and splashing about in the water. Time passes quickly when the tiny wildlife of rockpools distract attention. Some beaches even have caves and waterfalls to explore, and you may be tempted to venture beyond the main beach - there are lots of secret coves which might appear accessible at very low tide. But do keep an eye on that tide - it can come in and cut you off without you noticing.
Follow the guidelines of the RNLI, who provide Lifeguards for Ceredigion's main resort beaches each summer season.
Check the tide tables too - it will tell you when high tide and low is each day.
If swimming or surfing, be aware of the sea temperature and 'rip tides' and currents - see the map for each beach.
There are also specialist websites such as magicseaweed that give surf reports for beaches including Llangrannog and Borth/Ynyslas.
