Ynyslas Visitor Centre and Dyfi National Nature Reserve

The beach and sand dunes at Ynyslas are a popular spot for holidaymakers in summer but, as there are fewer people around during the colder months, it is a lovely time for a quieter walk to appreciate the what makes this place so special.

Along the way, look out for the range of different fungi in the dunes and bring your binoculars to see how many birds you can spot. The estuary is home to migratory and overwintering birds over the winter and you may see waders, sanderling and golden plover on the beach. You can buy books about fungi and birds from the visitor centre shop to help you identify what you see.

The visitor centre is open all winter and it is home to a new exhibition which helps bring the rich nature here to life. The centre sells hot and cold drinks and snacks. It has indoor seating and a shop selling books, cards, local artwork and toys.

Be aware of the effect the weather may have on your visit and check the forecast before you set off.

The reserve is exposed and the weather can be cold and windy. High tides are more frequent in winter and so the car park floods more often – please check the signs at the entrance carefully to make sure it is safe to park.
