Expect windy streets, stunning views, friendly locals, fresh seafood at reasonable prices, and a general calm, chilled out atmosphere.
You won't find any surfing and trendy beach bars in this New Quay. Instead you'll find a charming fishing harbour with a handful of shops, a nice variety of pubs, friendly B&Bs and some cracking good-value seaside restaurants. Everything is stacked on a hill, in seaside town fashion, so there's plenty of winding streets with stunning views to marvel at each turn. As it's predominantly a holiday town, there are some decent family attractions on offer, including a small aquarium and reptile museum, plus a small selection of novelty shops. But the most popular thing to do in this part of Wales, is dolphin-spotting. In fact, you'll probably find they'll spot you first, as they have a habit of popping into the harbour to say hello. You will also no doubt see quite a few references to the late Dylan Thomas, who reportedly used to frequently holiday/pub crawl here and in the area. Indeed New Quay has more than enough to entertain its tourists, but the seaside towns Aberaeron, Cardigan and Aberystwyth are only up the road and definitely worth seeing.
