By the sea

Tresaith Beach, Cardigan Bay

Tresaith Beach, Cardigan Bay

Set along the Ceredigion Coast Path surrounded by miles of breath-taking scenery, there is plenty to tease the eye amongst the towering, greenery-clad cliffs and sweeping golden sand. Yet, one feature draws particular attraction. Named after the River Saith, Tresaith is home to a beautiful waterfall that tumbles majestically from the clifftops onto the beach below. Around 100 feet high, the waterfall is a source of quiet awe and artistic inspiration.

With views as far as the Llyn Peninsula on a clear day and water often frequented by seals and dolphins, Tresaith Beach is popular with both visitors and locals. To escape the crowds for a while, visit the second, smaller beach at the northern end of Tresaith past the waterfall. Watch out for the tides though, as this beach is only accessible along the sand which disappears at high tide.

Enjoying plenty of facilities close to hand, beach goers have use of wheelchair access and can easily reach toilets, eateries, shops, a first aid post and the sailing club. Whether you are peering into rock pools, heading out for a sail or tucking into a spot of lunch overlooking the beach, there is something for all generations to look forward to. As for four-legged members of the family, dogs will have lots of fun playing games along the beach. Certain seasonal restrictions do apply in summer, however.

Lifeguarded in the summer months, the Blue Flag award-winning Tresaith Beach is a great choice for families. Parking along the seafront itself is limited, but there is a pay and display car park at the top of the hill, a short walk from the beach.
