Borth Beach

Details

Borth's beach is three miles of gently shelving golden sand and is especially popular with families with younger children and sailboard enthusiasts. The tide goes out a long way, so its shallow waters are great for the little ones to paddle in and splash about.

At the southern end of this wonderful beach, an ancient submerged forest is exposed by the ebbing tide. Welsh legend has it that the trunks of and tree stumps of old forests long hidden under sand and sea, are the remains of the land of Cantre'r Gwaelod, which disappeared under the waves of Cardigan Bay, long ago.

Cantre'r Gwaelod was protected by dykes and dams, but one night, a feast was held and the place's night watchman called Seithennyn became inebriated and neglected his duty, resulting in the submerging of Cantre'r Gwaelod. After a storm and the ebbing of a very high tide, more and more of these ancient tree stumps come into view.

Blue Flag and Seaside Award beach. Toilets, cafes, restaurants, pubs, shops, parking. Lifeguard service provided 10:00 - 18:00 1 July to 3 September 2017. Dog restrictions apply May to end September.
