Mwnt is a sheltered sandy cove owned by the National Trust and although it is off the beaten track, it is very popular in the summer. Perfect for families, it offers safe bathing, rock pools to play in and the chance to spot seals and bottle-nosed dolphins in the bay. Birdwatchers may see Chough, Peregrine Falcons, Stone Chat and plenty of the more common sea birds.
Many visitors take a walk around the headland of Foel y Mwnt, which is a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest and part of the Ceredigion Heritage Coast, to enjoy the views and the plentiful coastal plants and flowers. From here, you can also join the spectacular Ceredigion Coast Path, which follows a 60-mile route along the Cardigan Bay coastline.
There is a long flight of steep steps down this beach which makes it unsuitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.
