"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

New Quay - North Beach

Traeth Y Dolau is a small beach located in a very busy and popular seaside town, and is home to one of Wales' most popular sailing centres. There is a good selection of  places to eat and drink in addition to plenty  of organised tours and walks to go on, the most popular of which are the boat trips to watch the seals and dolphins of the Cardigan Bay Special Area of Conservation. New Quay is a picturesque and internationally renowned village and was once a flourishing shipbuilding center and fishing port.  Dylan Thomas once lived there and it is highly likely that llarregub, the "cliff-percjed town at the far end of Wales" featured in Under Mllkwood is based on this village.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
