The small cove of Cwytydu in it's deep wooded valley is surrounded by high pastures where you may well see wild ponies. The resotred lime kiln marks the back of the beach which is commonly supposed to have been used for smuggling. A number of cafés and lovely cliff walks make Cwmtydu popular with walkers, and the beach is easy to access for launching kayaks. The Ceredigion Heritage Coastal Path drops down into Cwytydu by decending along the valley side and then retuning to the coast to climb up towards New Quay.
