New Quay

New Quay is a popular seaside village in West Wales. The main attractions here is its' lovely safe sandy beach, harbourside bars and restaurants and some lovely little gift shops.

If you're very lucky during your visit here you may catch a glimpse of a Dolphin or two as they breed in the waters of Cardigan Bay and are often seen from the harbour.

Aberaeron - Not on the VT map :-(

Aberaeron is a fantastic, picturesque waterside town. Sadly there is no page for Aberaeron so seeing as it's just 5 miles up the road from New Quay I have decided to combine the two. This picture perfect town has been described as the most stunning town on the Welsh coast and it's easy to see why. The pretty cottages and town houses which surround the harbour are each painted a different colour, some bold, some pastel shades but they blend in perfectly with each other and create some wonderful photo opportunities for those budding photographers amongst us.

Quay parade/Pen Cei was recently chosen as the 5th most picturesque street in Britain by Google street view.

A favourite pastime here is to stroll alongside the harbour, walk along the scenic coastal paths or visit one of the many boutique shops or bars in the town.

    I wish VT would sort out the Place listings, Loads of places in Wales are just listed under UK (It's the same in England, Greece and probably loads of other places as well)
