Ceibwr Bay is a stunning spot for walking, sea angling and enjoying one of the most wild and remote parts of coastal Pembrokeshire.

Dog friendly?
Dogs are allowed year round. There is a responsibility for dog owners to clean up after their dogs on the whole of this site.

Getting there
You can get to Ceibwr by bike with a cycle route passing the cove. This cove is part of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail. Access to the pebble beach is from a path which is not suitable for push chairs or wheelchairs. By car minor roads from Newport or Cardigan lead to the village of Moylegrove. From here, a very narrow road leads to Ceibwr Bay. There is very limited roadside parking. Please be careful not to block access on this narrow road. Alternatively you can park in Moylegrove and walk the short distance of 0.7 miles.

Site description
Ceibwr is a rocky cove with a small area of pebble beach. It’s not particularly good for bathing, but is surrounded by superb scenery. The cove is at the mouth of a stream valley carved out by glacial meltwater. The level platform on the western side is an ancient “raised beach”, formed about 125,000 years ago. Grey seals are often seen here, basking on rocks or swimming in the bay. From Ceibwr you can walk along some of the most impressive sections of the Pembrokeshire Coast Path. About 0.6 miles (1km) to the south-west is the spectacular Witches’ Cauldron (Pwll-y-Wrach), a blow-hole caused by the collapse of a cave roof.

While there are no on site facilities, there is a wide range in Newport and Cardigan where shops, cafes, public houses and accommodation are plentiful. Toilets, including facilities for the disabled and a telephone are in Moylegrove less than a mile away. Please help keep Ceibwr beautiful and dispose of all waste in the provided facilities.
