Good parking and also a quality cafe for light meals and snacks. Plenty of walking along the coastal path and the long beach - dogs allowed after 30th Sept. Narrow lanes through St Dogmaels village to get to Poppit.

We visit Cardigan for a week twice each year and come here as so many beaches are dog friendly. We have two dogs and walk at Poppit just about every day. If you time it right with the tide, you can get a decent walk...More

We have spent the last week in a cottage on Poppit Beach. The beach is lovely, ideal for children and families. The sand is clean, the beach gently sloping. It is a little out of the way but there is parking and a lifeguard station....More
