Details

New Quay marks the half way point of the Wales Coast Path and on the sea front you will find the official half way point marked by a beautiful maiden sculpture that will blow you a kiss to wish you luck on your journey.

Heading north out of New Quay is the New Quay to Aberaeron section of the route. This is a popular section of the Wales Coast Path that presents no major challenges. The walk is a distance of 10.5km (6.5miles).

NEW QUAY TO CEi BACH (Distance 3.0km - 1.9 miles), grade - easy
Two route options exist between these locations. Most of the time the preferred option will be to walk along the beach around New Quay Bay but at high tide it may be necessary to follow the road. Both routes are signed and route maps are displayed at either end.

CEI BACH TO ABERAERON - Distance 7.5km (4.7 miles), grade - moderate
The southern end of this stretch of Coast path runs a little inland for a while but it is not long before cliff top views return. One of the highlights of this section is Cwm Buwch where the meandering Afon Drywi carves some interesting topography before becoming a waterfall that plunges onto an inaccessible beach.
