The small seaside village of Llangrannog is situated between the towns of Cardigan and New Quay on the breath-taking Ceredigion coastline of West Wales. Set in the pretty valley of the river Hawen, Llangrannog features two golden sandy beaches looking out over Cardigan Bay.
Llangrannog's main beach has been awarded the European blue flag status and attracts sunbathers, swimmers and water sports enthusiasts alike throughout the summer months. An interesting feature of this beach is the large rock to the north known as Carreg Bec. According to legend this rock was once the tooth of a local giant who spat it out after suffering from bad tooth ache. Further north past Carreg Bec lies the hidden sandy cove of Cilborth which can be accessed from the coastal path or via the main beach at low tide.
In addition to its fine beaches, Llangrannog offers an excellent base for walkers wanting to explore some of Wales' most spectacular and unspoilt coastline. From Llangrannog, walkers can join the Ceredigion Coast Path which stretches north-east towards Ynys Lochtyn and New Quay and south-west towards Penbryn, Tresaith, and Aberporth.
Llangrannog is also the home to the renowned residential centre and hostel, Gwersyll yr Urdd Llangrannog. The centre was founded in 1932 and continues to offer excellent facilities for activity holidays, family holidays, educational courses and summer camps.
Parking at Llangrannog is available at the sea front car park where a small charge is made during the summer months. Close to the beach visitors will find refreshment at a choice of cafés including the Beach Hut and Patio Café, as well as the two local pubs, The Ship Inn and Pentre Arms Hotel.
