Take a slow boat, some long summer days – sunshine would be good, but there's a lot to be said for a snug berth in a secure anchorage listening the rain pattering on the coach roof – and explore the Welsh coast from the sea, one of the best place to appreciate its wild, rugged beauty. There are a few fishing boats, of course, but most of time it's just you, your little boat, the sea and the sky.
Admire nature at its best and take a swim if you dare!
Sit back and enjoy nature's theatre; the doggy eyes of a seal watching curiously from the clear sea at Fishguard. The first pink light of dawn across the sea in the sheltered cove at Cwm yr Eglwys. Bottlenose dolphins playing in the bow waves across Cardigan Bay. Swim in ice cold water on a Mediterranean hot day at Aberystwyth.

I've been lucky enough to have sailed this part of the world, but you don't need your own boat to see this breath-taking coastline; there plenty of opportunities for organised trips too, http://www.visitcardigan.com/a-bay-to-remember-wildlife-boat-trips.html
You don't have to be a sailor to enjoy this coastline - walking is a delight too!
If sailing's not your thing, walking the Ceredigion Coast Path http://www.ceredigioncoastpath.org.uk/ is a great way to enjoy the area's environmental, natural and heritage assets as well as the specular coast.
Even better, there are wheelchair friendly stretches so that no one need miss out on this beautiful scenery. http://www.ceredigioncoastpath.org.uk/wheelchair.html
Cardigan Bay is a delight either on the water or on foot, what are you waiting for?
Whether you sail, walk or simply sit soaking up the views, I guarantee you'll be swept away by Cardigan Bay. Here's wind in your sails, hwyl fawr!
