New Quay is a pretty seaside village with terraced streets sloping down to its three beaches; Harbour Beach, Traeth Gwyn and Dolau. Harbour beach is the main safe beach for swimming and it is patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months. Dolau is a smaller sheltered beach east of the pier and Traeth Gwyn is a long stretch of golden sand between New Quay and Cei Bach. The sheltered harbour makes New Quay ideal for sailing, fishing and watersports so beach and sea waters are zoned for safety. There is a popular watersports centre on Harbour beach and regular boat trips sail along the Cardigan Bay coast where there are frequent sightings of bottlenose dolphins.
There are beautiful coastal walks from New Quay and the Ceredigion Coastal Path can be joined going to Aberaeron in the north or to Llangrannog and Aberporth in the south.
New Quay village is well served by restaurants, cafes, pubs, takeaway and fish and chip shops and there are plenty of restaurants, pubs and shops in the surrounding villages such as Aberaeron and Llangrannog. There is a beach café on Harbour beach which is open daily from Easter to late September.
