Aberdyfi is a small seaside village on the north side of the Dyfi estuary in southern Snowdonia. It is where the river Dyfi meets the green-blue waters of Cardigan Bay.
Aberdyfi is one of those simple, seductive little resorts that hits the right spot. All the ingredients are here – a golden beach, crabbing and fishing from the quayside, yachts in the bay and views across the estuary to die for.
The village was founded around the shipbuilding industry and boasts a number of excellent beaches. The first ever outward bound centre opened in Aberdyfi in 1941 and the town continues to have a strong yacht club and is a haven for water sports enthusiasts.
Quaint old streets rise up to spectacular viewpoints whilst in the heart of the village you can enjoy browsing in specialist boutiques and art galleries or dine in exeptional inns and restaurants. Or you can simply sit in this idyllic setting and relax.
You don't need to travel too far from Aberdyfi to find a different world - that of spectacular mountain and valley scenery. The peaks of the Cader Idris and Aran Fawddwy ranges are within easy reach and are complimented by the charm of the Dovey and Dysynni valleys nearby. An ideal area for walkers, climbers and wildlife watchers.
Aderdyfi has a station on the Cambrian Coast line from Machynlleth to Pwllheli and also at Penhelig at the east end of the village.
