Cardigan Bay is the largest Bay in the British Isles, stretching approximately 50 miles from Bardsey Island off the Llyn Peninsular in the north to Strumble Head in Pembrokeshire in the South. Cardigan Bay is home to a rich variety of wildlife including the largest resident population of bottlenose dolphins in the whole of Europe. Although the ever playful bottlenose dolphins which often steal the limelight, Cardigan Bay is also home the smaller harbour porpoise, atlantic grey seals, and a wide variety of bird species.

This has lead to Cardigan Bay’s beautiful coastline being designated as a Special Area of Conservation to help ensure its beauty and its wildlife is safeguarded for generations to come.  Have a look at this website and see if it could lead to a memorable day out.  We haven’t tried it but they have won a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
