Wales is operating country-wide restrictions and is currently at coronavirus alert level four, with strict measures in place to limit the spread of the virus. Please check on the Welsh Government website before visiting or travelling to Wales or within Wales.


Borth is part of the Dyfi Biosphere, the only UNESCO Biosphere reserve in Wales, plus the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and Visitor Centre at Ynyslas. The Wales Coast Path passes through Borth village.

Borth is just 7 miles north of Aberystwyth and is served by the Cambrian Railway LIne. It boasts a Blue Flag Beach with over two miles of golden sand as it stretches northwards to Ynyslas. The beach is of a particularly shallow gradient, making it ideal for young families.

At certain times of the year low tide reveals the stumps of an ancient forest that flourished over 1500 years ago. The submerged woodland evokes the myth of Cantre'r Gwaelod, an ancient Kingdom said to be swallowed by the sea.

Springtime heralds the arrival of Ospreys overhead as the sea birds make their home along the Cambrian Bay Coast. Wildlife watchers can also visit the National Nature Reserve at Ynyslas which offers bird watching cabins, a tourist centre and an exhibition space, as well as miles of rugged landscape and rolling sand dunes.

In Borth there is the popular Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club that stretches along the coast parallel to the sea. In August the town in festive spirit as the community holds their annual Carnival.
The Borth Animalarium is another prime attraction which houses a collection of interesting and unusual animals.

The caravan parks that surround the town are some of the finest in Wales and make the town a particularly good base from which to explore the coastline, with Barmouth, Aberdovey and Harlech to the North, and Aberystwyth to the south, all a short train journey away.
