The National Trust owns the rural, unspoilt beach at Penbryn, which has no facilities immediately nearby. They also manage the car park about 400 metres from the beach, where there are public toilets and a lovely cafe, the Plwmp Tart, which serves lovely light lunches and ice cream. From the car park you can either walk down the lane directly to the beach, or via a footpath behind the cafe which takes you through a lovely wooded valley.

The golden sand stretches almost a mile and there’s an impressive cave at the north end. From here, you can easily access the Ceredigion Coast Path and many other beautiful inland walks.

The coastline here is home to a rich variety of marine animals and plants, from reef-building worms to bottlenose dolphins. The remote location and lack of light pollution make this an ideal spot for stargazing in the summer months. In fact, Penbryn Beach is designated a Dark Skies Discovery Site.

For your self catering needs, there is a shop and garage on the main road at Brynhoffnant and there are also a couple of pubs in that village – as well as the popular Ship Inn at Tresaith, not to be confused with the Ship in Llangrannog, where you’ll also find the Pentre Arms.
