New Quay (Welsh: Cei Newydd) is a seaside town in Ceredigion, Wales, lying on Cardigan Bay. It is known for its bottlenose dolphins and was briefly home to Dylan Thomas, who used it as Llareggub in his play Under Milk Wood.

Other attractions in the town include its harbour, beach, heritage centre and Marine Wildlife Centre.

The town should not be confused with Newquay in Cornwall.
