Llangrannog village and beach

The seaside village of Llangrannog lies on the coast of Ceredigion, in a narrow river valley where the Hawen runs rapidly into Cardigan Bay. In the lower part, the valley is so steep that the river becomes a waterfall.

The village is spread along the valley; the older settlement, including the church, sited above the waterfall - hidden from view of the sea and from threat of attack.
 
The lower part, or 'Beach Village' was built in later, safer years and grew into a flourishing commercial port.

Today Llangrannog is well known to thousands of visitors as a tranquil, safe, seaside holiday destination.

Beach
Llangrannog has a sheltered sandy beach known as 'Traeth y Pentref' (the village beach). It has a distinctive large rock on the shore's edge called 'Carreg Bica' which according to legend was once a giant's tooth.
 
At low tide, you can walk past the rock to the hidden sandy cove of Cilborth. There is also a cliff path leading from the village to Cilborth which is not affected by the tide.
