Gwbert Beaches

The clifftop hamlet of Gwbert (pronounced 'Goo-bert') lies about 2½ miles north of the county town of Cardigan. Lying on the eastern side of the Teifi estuary, it has a few rather unimpressive coves, the best of which is known as Morgan's Beach (above). This is the furthest out of Gwbert and reached by taking the path northwards from the Cliff Hotel. It is mostly course sand backed by shale cliffs and access to the shore is down a good path with steps cut into the rock.

Before reaching this, the path passes an old lime kiln, from where a short path leads down to another disappointing cove known as Cowley Beach. This is a very narrow beach, with a small amount of sand.

Evelyn's Beach is a tiny cove of shingle and low-tide sand backed by shale cliffs on the south side of the Cliff Hotel. Access is down a signposted and slightly overgrown path from the hotel car park.

Parking in Gwbert is difficult, and the best advice is to park at the viewpoint about ½ mile before the village. Dogs are allowed at all times on the beaches.

The name Gwbert is said to derive from that of a nomadic saint (Cubert) who is reputed to have landed here.
