New Quay is a fortunate seaside resort with not just one beach but three beautiful beaches and two harbours. New Quay, or Cei Newydd, is located on the Ceredigion coastline between the towns of Aberaeron to the north and Llangrannog and Aberporth to the south. Originally, a fishing village New Quay later developed as a shipbuilding centre, reaching its peak in the middle of the 19th Century. In bygone days the residents would hope to catch herring, mackerel, crabs and lobsters, while today, although a small fleet of boats sails from the harbour, the prime catch is tourists.
The beautiful location of New Quay, nestled in the bay between New Quay Head and Llanina, has helped in no small way to make New Quay a successful holiday resort, while the increasing interest in wildlife and activity holidays make New Quay a popular choice with visitors. A stroll along the harbour wall will often be rewarded with sightings of bottlenose dolphins. Indeed, in my experience, and probably that of the patient anglers who crowd the harbour walls, the dolphins are more common off New Quay harbour than the mackerel or the bass!
