There are a
number of scenic walks - footpaths and trails in the

Path. Click on the photos below for more information.
Bach circular walk
A relaxing 1.5
mile walk, this section of the coastal path starts near the Cei Bach
Country Club and offers some fine views of New Quay and Llanina Point.
The photos on this walk were taken on an afternoon in mid
November. This walk is best taken when the tide is low enough to return
along the beach. Click on the photo for more information.

Dylan Thomas Trail in New Quay
Author David Thomas, in his recently published book 'Dylan Thomas, A
Farm, Two Mansions and a Bungalow', has put together a convincing case
that New Quay is the inspiration of Thomas's Llareggub (read
it backwards!). Details of the 'Dylan trail' in his book 'The
Dylan Thomas Trail' ( Published by Y Lolfa Cyf, Talybont,
2002, £6.95) take the visitor to a number of locations
identified as models for locales in the fictional Llareggub.
Council provides a leaflet entitled 'Dylan Thomas - New Quay' available
from the New Quay and Aberaeron Tourist Offices (below). Click
