Dolau Beach, New Quay
New Quay - 'Cei Newydd', with Its picturesque houses, pubs and restaurants clings to the sides of the hills rising above the blue waters of Cardigan Bay on the coast of West Wales. The town was once important for fishing and shipbuilding with wooden boats being built on the local beaches (see: New Quay's history below). The sheltered harbour and safe beaches now the focus of activity in the summer when New Quay becomes a bustling and vibrant holiday resort where sailing, fishing, water sports and relaxation, are among the main attractions.
