Map showing Cardigan Bay
Cardigan Bay
Cardigan Bay ( ) is a large inlet of the Irish Seamarker, indenting the west coast of Walesmarker, between Bardsey Islandmarker, Gwyneddmarker and Strumble Headmarker, Pembrokeshiremarker

Cardigan Bay has numerous beaches and unique marine life (such as dolphins), making it one of the finest stretches of coastline in Britain. From the Ceredigion Coast Path it is possible to observe Bottlenose Dolphins and Atlantic Grey Seals.

Much of the coast surrounding the bay is fertile farmland, dotted with towns and seaside resorts such as Fishguardmarker, New Quaymarker, Aberaeronmarker, Aberystwythmarker, Borthmarker, Aberdyfimarker, Tywynmarker, Barmouthmarker, Porthmadogmarker and Pwllhelimarker on the Cambrian Coast.

Major rivers flowing into the bay include the Afon Glaslynmarker, Teifimarker, Rheidolmarker, Dyfimarker, Aeronmarker, Dysynnimarker and Mawddachmarker.

Up until the early twentieth century, Cardigan Bay supported a strong maritime industry. Cardigan is located at the mouth of the River Teifi - hence the Welsh name, Aberteifi ( ), and at one time was a more important port than Cardiffmarker.

The central and northern areas of the Bay is the location of the legendary Cantre'r Gwaelod, the drowned "Lowland Hundred" or "Hundred under the Sea".
