Things You Should Know
Llangrannog and Cilborth beach:
Boasts superb coastal scenery coupled with two sandy beaches - the main one and the adjoining Cilborth Beach in a hidden cove. Llangrannog is popular with locals and visitors alike, plus it has two excellent cafes, and two pubs looking over the bay.
Blue Flag beach – dogs allowed in certain areas.
Frequent sightings of dolphins.
Mwnt beach: Is owned by the National Trust. A 13th century church and a wealth of history make this a beautiful destination for visitors especially during the summer months.
The seaside village of Llangrannog was established around the church during the 6th Century, although there is evidence of an early Celtic settlement at nearby Lochtyn. The village developed rapidly with the increase in fishing and associated trade. 24 ships were built near the beach and until 1914 almost all of the male inhabitants were seafarers. Today, tourism is the main industry where visitors are attracted by the sandy beaches and the unique village atmosphere. With beautiful surroundings and adjacent places of interest, Llangrannog can certainly offer something for everyone.
Y Gerwn, a striking Waterfall on the river Hawen is well worth seeing and the height of the water was used to drive a woollen mill situated a few yards away (which is derelict and on Private land). Examples of cloth manufactured here are on display at the museum at Drefach Velindre near Newcastle Emlyn.
Carreg Bica, the large rock between Llangrannog and Cilborth Beaches is well known and features in most photographs. According to legend Carreg Bica is the tooth of the giant Bica who lived in the Ceredigion area, and was forced to spit his tooth onto the beach following a bad toothache. In reality, the rock is a stack of Ordovician rock weathered by the sea, one of many along the coastline. A large piece of Carreg Bica fell away some years ago.
