Traeth Bach

Traeth Bach (Little Beach) is a small secluded cove about halfway between Llangrannog and Penbryn, with the island of Carreg-y-ty on the north side. Access is by coast path followed by a short but steep descent to the beach. There are two ways down - one route leaves the coast path at the bottom of the valley and ends with a climb of about 20 feet down the rocks. The slightly easier route is a narrow path which leaves the coast path on the west side (near to the gate into the field) and is very steep but doesn't involve climbing.

The beach is very sheltered and consists of sand surrounded by high cliffs, with a small waterfall at the back of the beach. It's a good place for sunbathing, swimming and seclusion. The tidal island has a cave running through it. This may be used by seals for breeding between August and October, so should be avoided at this time.

Comment : This is a stunning hidden cove and arguably one of, if not, the best beach in Ceredigion. The descent down on either side is not for the faint of heart. I use my row boat to get there. For all its seclusion and difficult access it does get fairly busy in good weather/peak season.
