Seals and Dolphins abound!
Our coastline is rich in wildlife... The caves and rocks at Cwmtydu are also known locally as 'Seals Bay'.
There are an estimated 5000 grey seals in west Wales and their pups are born September to December. Seals spend 80% of their time submerged but can often be seen on the rocks at Seals Bay resting between their feeding excursions. Volunteers from the Cwmtydu Bay Wildlife group watch over the mothers and pups during the pupping season - see their website for information on what to do if you think you have spotted an abandoned pup, and read about the previous years pups on the Seal Blog.
The stunning coastline of Cardigan Bay has the largest population of dolphins in Europe and is the best place to spot one. We have over 60 miles of coastline, 30 beaches and a bottle nosed dolphin population of more than 250!
Dolphins are regularly seen from our local beaches - bring your binoculars for a better view. Read about these fascinating creatures and see an amazing video which was filmed off Llangrannog here.
Take a boat trip from New Quay to see these fantastic creatures for yourself - links to some of these can be found on the Local Activities page.
