Tywyn Beach

Tywyn Gwynedd LL36 0AT

A magnificent golden strand stretching five miles from the eponymous town in the north to the more attractive harbour of Aberdyfi in the south, Tywyn Beach as been described by Bill Bryson as ‘the perfect little seaside community’. Bathing and surfing here is a delight, and if you’re prepared to walk a few minutes from the main access points at Twywn or Aberdyfi, or through the dunes at various points along the A493, which runs between the two towns, you can find as much solitude as you're ever likely to want (bear in mind that you have to cross a single-track railway line to access this particular stretch of beach though). This stretch of coastline is probably better for walking than idling on the beach though – indeed it's part of the recently opened Wales Coastal Path. Just stride out from Tywyn, head south along the beach and keep going until you round the cusp of Dovey Estuary and wander into Aberdyfi for fish and chips; or even better head to the Britannia Inn on Seaview Terrace and enjoy a well-earned libation whilst you watch the boats bobbing in the harbour and the clouds scudding over the peaks of southern Snowdonia and the Cambrian Mountains.And if you’re worried about the five-mile tramp back to your starting point, simply hop on the train back to Tywyn
