"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Mwnt Beach

This rural small, sandy cove is one of the flagship bathing waters in Ceredigion. The bathing water is extremely popular with both tourists and residents alike. The beach is backed by high cliffs and accessed by a series of steps. There is a small stream which issues onto the beach but it is not thought to have any water quality issues. There is a large car park owned by the National Trust at the top of the cliff and a small caravan site nearby.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.

Owned by the National Trust, the headland of Mwnt overlooks a sheltered sandy beach. Short circular cliff top walks, a remote family beach, a 13th century church and a wealth of history make this a beautiful destination for visitors, especially during the summer months.
