Mwnt Beach

Mwnt beach is a secluded sandy bay situated within Cardigan Bay and looks out onto the Irish Sea. The beach is owned and maintained by the National Trust. Mwnt gets its name from the steep conical hill, which is a landmark of Cardigan Bay.

From the clifftop walks you may get to see Bottlenosed Dolphins, Seals and Porpoise.

Facilities include small cafe and shop, disabled toilets and a campsite. The beach is backed by high cliffs and accessed by a series of steps.

Mwnt Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
