Tywyn Beach

Tywyn Beach

Beach, free entry


LL36 0DF


Tywyn’s name derives from Welsh words meaning dunes and seaside. There’s firm sand too - lots of it. Extensive sand dunes can be seen on the south part of the beach, which is about five miles long. There are very few rocks so, together with its west-facing aspect, it’s a great place for surfing. The beach’s wide, open location makes it popular for all kinds of other watersports, including jet skiing. The waters are also popular with Cardigan Bay’s populations of harbour porpoises and bottlenose dolphins. Tywyn’s seaside credentials include a promenade and paddling pool. There’s easy access to the beach and plentiful parking, both free and pay-and-display.

Blue Flag & Seaside Award beach. Toilets and parking. Dog restrictions apply April to end September.
