Wildlife

Wildlife

Many  who come to stay on the coast of Cardigan Bay are interested in seeing wild Dolphins, for in all of Britain, this is probably the best place to see them. In the New Quay / Llangrannog area they can be seen from the shore and from boats which take groups out from New Quay on a regular basis. There is however much more to be seen, birds such as the Chough, the Puffin and the Red Kite, and a wide variety of marine life in the rock pools and in Cardigan Bay.
