Details

Ynyslas has three stunning miles of golden beach stretching from Borth in the south to the sand dunes in the north. It is a majestic spot for walking, picnics and windsurfing.The superb sand dunes of Ynyslas are at the southern side of the Dyfi estuary are the largest dunes in Ceredigion.

Ynyslas dunes reach onto the Dyfi Estuary and are part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve. They demonstrate all the stages of dune formation and growth and are home to a rich population of orchids, mosses, liverworts, fungi, insects and spiders; many of these species are rare and some are unknown elsewhere in Britain.

In the summer the dunes naturally transform into a colourful carpet of wild flowers including many rare types of orchid.

Visitors can drive onto the sands and park near the Visitor Centre that has interpretation displays and toilets. A boardwalk through the dunes leads to the stunning beach made up of three miles of golden sands.

Dog restrictions May to end September.

THE DYFI ESTUARY
The Dyfi estuary is in the heart of the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere. The estuary has vast areas of internationally important mudflats, sandbanks and saltmarsh that provide important feeding and roosting areas for wetland birds.

There are far-reaching views over the estuary towards Aberdyfi but, even though this town looks so nearby, it is a 45 minute drive around the estuary from Ynyslas.
