The coast of Cardigan Bay is ideal for those who enjoy water based leisure activities such as sailing, scuba diving, or angling: regular boat trips depart from Aberaeron and New quay on 'dolphin spotting' trips.

Surfing, windsurfing, landsurfing or kitesurfing - Ceredigion's coast is a favourite with experts and beginners alike, and Borth, in Northern Ceredigion, is one of wales' most popular beaches for watersports. Windsurfers enjoy excellent conditions too, with experts heading for the swell at Ynyslas.
