- Not to be confused with Newquay.
Only some 1200 people permanently live in this town on Cardian Bay, but in season this number increases significantly as the holiday parks around town fill up.
Although the tourism industry has found its way here, New Quay maintains its feel as a fishermen's village. Indeed, sea fishing and fish processing remain large sources of employment and income.
For visitors, the main sights are the beautiful little harbour and of course the beach. Bottlenose dolphins live in the bay and can regularly be spotted from the beach.
- Hop on a boat for a couple of hours of crab fishing, fishing, or dolphin spotting.
- Hike around town. One of the best routes is the Cei Bach circular walk, best taken at low tide so you can return via the beach.
- Cardigan Bay Regatta: 23–25 August 2020. goes back to the 1870s or further and boast cruiser racing, rowing, swimming and other water related competitions. (date needs updating)
There are many holiday resort complexes and camp or caravan grounds on the outskirts of town.
