Cardigan - a beautiful town in Wales

Updated on June 3, 2014
Cardigan, Wales
Cardigan, Wales

Cardigan, is a little town in Mid Wales. This is a place you have to visit if you are interested in lazy days, abundant greenery and lots of beautiful beaches and rich culture. Despite being an important town, it has a very small population. This is a town where Welsh, a Celtic language, thrives.

Cardigan also has several first class hotels, so accommodation for you and your family will never be a problem. But if you are of the adventurous, and independent type, there are cottages that you must stay at, which are not exactly hotels, and hence you might have to cater to yourself. These are the ones that actually showcase the rich heritage and culture of this place.

The river Teifi, is an important part of the town, and is also responsible for its Celtic name, Aberteifi (which means at the mouth of the Teifi). They also have a rich history as a port because of this river. It is no longer a port though, because of silt accumulation.

The beaches of Cardigan
There are several pristine beaches on Cardigan. With few people around, you have all of these beaches for yourselves, to enjoy the peace and calm. You can easily spot a lot of wild life in these beaches, like dolphins and seals. Most of them have shallow seas, and are safe for you and your children. Most of these are award winning beaches, for safety and accessibility.

Landscapes of Cardigan

If you are into nature photography, or just hiking and trekking, this is again, the right place to be. There are several circular walks that showcase the most beautiful parts of the Teifi valley. Nothing very stressful though. You can have gentle walks around the village, and the woods. You can also spot lots of birds here. Most of these walks start from the beaches and take you inwards, towards the woods. You can also spot many old castles built by the Normans as you go further south.

So, hope that got you all interested in traveling to Wales. This is indeed a beautiful place, and I really love the sound of the Welsh language. The ambiance of this town is sure to enthrall you. The meditative calm and peace that you can enjoy on the beaches is very rare to find. Despite all this, the town is considered well developed with most modern amenities easily available.
