Traeth Gwyn

[Skip to Content]
Traeth Gwyn

Traeth Gwyn (also known as Llanina Beach), is a mile long crescent-shaped beach situated between New Quay's harbour beach and Llanina Point. It is made up of course sand and some shingle, backed by banks/cliffs of boulder clay, which are showing signs of erosion. The coastal path runs along the back of the beach at its eastern end, with steps up to the cliff top roughly at the centre of the beach. It is generally a safe beach for swimming and dogs are allowed at all times.

Access is either from Llanina Point or at low to mid-tide, from New Quay. There is a small (free) car parking area at Llanina woods (Grid Ref: SN405596), from where the coastal path leads to the point. A small stream emerges onto the beach here.

The photos were taken 2 hours before low tide.
