Cardigan Island Coastal Farm is well worth a visit - a unique farm park is stunningly located on a scenic headland, overlooking the nature reserve of Cardigan Island, which is just 200 yards off-shore, so it can be clearly viewed from the park.
Cardigan Island is home to thousands of nesting sea-birds, so access has to be restricted. It also has a flock of wild Soay sheep, originally from the isle of Soay, south of Skye, Scotland.
A colony of Atlantic grey seals breed in the many caves below the farm park cliffs and can be seen virtually every day.
Cardigan Bay's bottlenose dolphins are frequent visitors to the waters surrounding the park, particularly during calm weather, when they swim closer to the shore. They can be viewed clearly from the park.
