Ynyslas - Twyni Bach (Estuary) Beach - Dyfed

© Nigel Brown and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

This wide expanse of sandy beach lies on the southern side of the mouth of the River Dovey (Afon Dyfi). The beach is backed by an extensive dune system and the Ynyslas National Nature Reserve which features a popular visitor centre. From the beach there are views across the estuary towards Aberdyfi, with a magnificent hilly backdrop in the distance.

Visitors come here to relax and walk amongst the dunes or look for the many interesting shells that can be found along the beach.

Swimming here is dangerous because of the presence of strong river currents.

There is a tradition of parking cars on a roped-off part the beach here, in return for a small fee.
