The ancient parish of Mwnt is situated 5 miles north-west of Cardigan on the Ceredigion coast in West Wales. Mwnt is named after a steep conical hill which offers spectacular views out to Cardigan Island in the west and Ynys Lochtyn in the east. Lying just below the headland is the Church of the Holy Cross, a quaint, white-washed church dating back to the 13th century.
Visitors to Mwnt can enjoy the golden sands of Mwnt beach, a sheltered sandy cove hidden below the headland. Whilst not patrolled by a life guard, the beach attracts many families, sunbathers and swimmers during the summer months. The surrounding cliffs are also a popular spot amongst anglers wanting to fish mackerel and bass.
From Mwnt walkers can join the Ceredigion Coast Path which travels west to Cardigan and east to Aberporth and Llangrannog. The cliff top walk to Aberporth offers stunning views across Cardigan Bay and during the summer months the chance to spot grey seals, bottle-nosed dolphins and porpoise as well as a host of bird life.
