AM - In the morning, spend time exploring Llangrannog and take a walk along the beach. Just north of Llangrannog beach is the secluded cove of Cilborth, accessed either from Llangrannog beach at low tide or via the cliff steps from the Coast Path. Between the two beaches is a large tooth-shaped rock known as Carreg Bica. Legend has it that it once belonged in the mouth of a local giant.

Park here: Llangrannog Park and Ride Free Car Park, Min-Y-Nant, Llandysul SA44 6RL (there is a regular shuttle bus that is run by volunteers that you may be able to hop on, but it’s only a short walk into the village otherwise)

PM – Jump in the car and drive north to New Quay. Once a thriving port, its now well known for dolphin spotting and Blue Flag and Seaside Award-winning beaches.

For lunch, head to the Lime Crab fish and chip shop (S John St, New Quay SA45 9NP) which is known for its fish and chips with a twist. Keep your receipt and we’ll reimburse you later.

Ní dhéanann Y Polyn iarracht a bheith ceannródaíoch le healaín theicniúil ar an bpláta – tá sé bródúil as táirgí áille áitiúla a chócaráiltear ar bhealach simplí. Tá uaineoil réisc goirt, mairteoil na Breataine Bige agus muiceoil tearcphóir ina mbuaicphointí ar an mbiachlár.
