Ceredigion Coast Path 03

In terms of environmental credentials, the Ceredigion Coast Path on the west coast of Wales has more to puff its chest out about than most, thanks to its four segments of designated Heritage Coast and two Marine Special Areas of Conservation.

Add to this the country’s highest number of dolphin sightings, a treasure trove of Iron Age forts; a waterfall at Tresaith Beach, an unusual feature that is the result of past glacial activity, a dune system at Ynyslas, storm beaches, and sea caves galore. From Llangrannog to New Quay, Ceredigion Coast Path is a wonderfully precipitous trail cut into the side of a coastal slope, where one false step could be your last, from Cwn Tydu to New Quay there are spectacular examples of folded rocks, and forest trails that take you briefly inland from Cel Bach where poet Dylan Thomas lived and wrote, to the village of Aberaeron, where more than a quarter of all its buildings are heritage listed.

Ceredigion Coast Path 01

When you reach one of the Ceredigion Coast Path’s Heritage Coast sections between Llanrhystud and Aberystwyth, the dramatic coastline will lure you on through green cliff-hugging pastures to Constitution Hill, a vantage point that is guaranteed to give you pause as you gaze over twenty-six Welsh peaks spanning almost the entire length of the country. This walk is a real gem.

But I always felt that a horrible day of travel is infinitely more preferable than a great day at the office. Oh the stories I could tell, and I will try to do that here in Tramposaurus Treks. You'll have access to the good times, the horrifying times, and a few well-deserved moments of travel glamour.
