Aberdyfi Beach

Aberdyfi Beach


Aberdyfi is a long, sandy, south facing beach backed by dunes. The sands are steep and shelving with strong currents from the estuary. The resort is a popular centre for sailing and windsurfing; pleasure boat trips run from the harbour. There are regular regattas in summer. The coastal waters and surrounding area have been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation (SAC), in recognition of their ecological importance.

Aberdyfi's southern shore is a haven for wildlife and is part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve. This area is also designated as a Ramsar site, named after the convention that encourages wise use of the world's exceptional wetlands. Situated where the mountains meet the sea, the village of Aberdyfi is one of Gwynedd's most attractive coastal villages with a range of shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. A wider range of services, including cycle hire are on offer at nearby Tywyn.
