New Quay is a bustling harbour town whose character and lovely beaches attract plenty of visitors in summer. Seals and dolphins are known to live in the bay and wildlife-watching boat trips depart regularly from the harbour in peak season.

South Beach is at the southern end of the wide stretch of sand below the harbour. It is close to the lifeboat station and the Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre.

There are pay-for car parks in the village, and also on the village outskirts, for busy times.

Places to eat, drink, shop and stay can be found in the village.
