Along the valley in which the river Hawen winds its way out to Cardigan Bay sites the village of Llangrannog, where a population of 796 people enjoy a picturesque seaside home with a long history.
Perhaps the most striking feature of Llangrannog's many impressive landscapes is Carreg Bica (Bica's Rock) which, as legend has it, was a tooth spat from the mouth of the giant Bica, who was suffering from a toothache. When travellers first see this huge stack of sea-weathered Ordovician rock, they may sympathise with Bica!
The oldest parts of the village of Llangrannog lie above a waterfall in the Hawen, hidden behind a twist in the valley. This location helped to hide the village from Vikings and sea marauders over a thousand years ago, though houses, shops and other buildings have since connected the old town to the bay.
Visitors to the beach at Llangrannog are within a minute's walk of two cafes, a shop and two pubs - The Ship and the Pentre Arms.
Holiday makers come to Llangrannog mainly to enjoy the beautiful unspoiled coastline but there is plenty to entertain history buffs, such as a church dedicated to 6th century saint Caranog, with features dating back to the 17th century.
