Aberdyfi is a picturesque coastal village situated where the mountains meet the sea at the mouth of the River Dyfi in Southern Snowdonia. Its beach, with miles of perfect sand and occasional sand dunes, stretches from Aberdyfi to the nearby town of Tywyn. However, due to strong currents around the estuary mouth, swimmers need to be cautious while venturing out.

Once a working port, Aberdyfi now caters to sailing and watersports enthusiasts. Its bustling harbour is an ideal base for crab fishing, scenic boat trips, sailing, kayaking, kite-flying, dog walking, and sandcastle building, all with magnificent views of Cardigan Bay. Look out for the bell hanging from the pier, which rings with the tide.

The southern shore of Aberdyfi along the Dyfi Estuary is a part of the UNESCO Dyfi Biosphere and the Dyfi National Nature Reserve. This untouched area, which is home to various wildlife, is also a Ramsar site. The beach nearest to the town has dog restrictions from April to the end of September, but the rest of the beach is open to dog walkers.

Aberdyfi has shops, cafes, restaurants, and toilets, and car parking is available with a charge.
