Beach:Ynyslas Beach

Beach, free entry


Ynyslas sand dunes are located slightly north of Borth and reach onto the Dyfi Estuary, part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and home to many rare plants and animals. In the summer the dunes naturally transform into a colourful carpet of wild flowers including many rare types of orchid. Substantial work is carried out to sustain the area's biodiversity in balance with its use.

Visitors are allowed to drive onto the sands and park near the Visitor Centre that has interpretation displays and toilets. A boardwalk through the dunes leads to the stunning beach made up of three miles of golden sands.

Dog restrictions May to end September.
