Tywyn Beach is found in Snowdonia, just outside of the town from which it takes its name. The golden sands are magnificent, stretching for just over five miles, all the way along to the pretty little harbour of Aberdyfi, which is itself a lovely place to visit.

The beach has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag, meaning it has been recognised by the Foundation for Environmental Education for its safety, cleanliness, and good water quality. This means you can pack your towels and your bucket and spade sets and head to the beach, and not have to worry about litter or pollution.

It is a fantastic beach for just about everything, though the waves are only good enough for surfing now and then. When it comes to walks along the coast, swimming in the sea, taking in spectacular views of Cardigan Bay and Snowdonia, playing a game of beach volleyball or even trying your hand at skimboarding, you’d be hard pressed to find a better beach than Tywyn.

Dog restrictions do apply, so make sure you check in advance. It’s a great place for families, with a café and toilets nearby, as well as an amusement arcade and a lovely promenade.
