Poppit Sands Dark Sky Discovery Site


The least restricted views of the sky from Poppit Sands are from the beach, accessed by crossing a quiet road and passing at the side of the lifeboat station.

Views to the south are slightly limited but there is excellent viewing in all other directions. There is some light pollution from the lifeboat stations and café, and although moving further out onto the sand may reduce the impact of this.

The proximity to Cardigan and easy access means it offers potential to attract visitors who might not wish to travel to the more remote locations or happen to be staying in the area. The beach head can be accessed by wheelchair; there is a viewing platform at the end of the boardwalk that runs alongside the lifeboat station.





The Coronavirus crisis is not over so some restrictions remain in place in Wales. Please understand that things may be slightly different to what you may be used to. This includes a 2 METER social distancing rule. You will also be asked to provide your name and details of where you are staying when you book restaurants or tickets for activities/attractions. This is necessary for the track & trace system which helps to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, to protect our communities, the public and our health services.

Please help us to look after the health of our communities and to protect our environment, land and seascapes .
