At Llanrhystud, the rivers Carrog, Wyre and Wyre Fach meet before flowing into the sea. The oldest part of the village is situated near St Rhystud's Church, which is a Grade II listed building. The area surrounding the church has been designated as a conservation area. Llanrhystud acts as a focus for a large rural area and possesses a relatively wide range of facilities and has a good bus service along the coast road.

The beach has a shingle bank with a half mile long sandy beach at low tide. It is reached via a single track road which leaves the A487 just south of the petrol station in Llanrhystud. Free parking is available at the end of the beach and on the shingle. With its panoramic view of Cardigan Bay, Llanrhystud beach is well suited for windsurfing, swimming and general leisure activities.

The Ceredigion/Wales Coastal Path runs along the top of the shingle bank, which has been levelled as much as possible to provide a reasonable walking surface. To the south the shore becomes rockier, and backed by low cliffs of boulder clay with five historic lime kilns adjacent to the coastal path. North of the Afon Wyre the shore is completely rocky.
