...from gorgeous long sandy beaches to petrified forests ...
Smugglers Cove Foreshore
Our nearest beach is our own private foreshore, which is available to all of our guests, it gets bigger as the tide goes out, allowing fun and frolicks and games of cricket as the ever expanding sand banks etend over towards Ynyshir.
Aberdyfi Main Beach
The second closest beach to us is the extremely popular Aberdyfi Main Beach, directly in front of the town. Here you can enjoy everything from a paddle in the shallows to a leap from the wooden jetty, wind surfing, sailing, dropping crab lines from the jetty, cooking up a lovely beach BBQ and perhaps even having a game of beach volley ball!
Aberdyfi North Beach
Stretching between Aberdyfi Main Beach and Tywyn Beach this vast stretch of uniterrupted sand lends itself to great long walks with your beloved (be it your partner or dog, which are allowed on this area of the beach), exploring the rolling sand dunes between the shore and the golf club or perhaps a gallop on your trusty steed between the two towns.
Adjoining Aberdyfi, Tywyn is popular with those launching pleasure boats or trying a spot of fishing or surfing etc. There are also a couple of amusement arcades to help whittle away those spare coins on the tuppeny falls and teh obligatory ice cream vendors to help add a couple of pounds at the same time!
South of the Dyfi estuary, recent storms have unvailed yet more of the petrified forest that once was present at this stretch of coastline (see the banner image above). The most amazing find being a perfectly preserved set of 4000 year old antlers that had been uncovered by the strong tides, now taking pride of position at the museum on Borth Station.
Heading north towards the Dyfi estuary back in the general direction of Smugglers Cove from Borth, this majestic stretch of sand seems endless when the tide goes out. Horse riders, kite surfers, fishermen and kite flyers are regular haunts of this stretch of beautiful sandy beach, with protected sand dunes teaming with wildlife and a visitor centre to grab a quick snack or souvenir.
