In the village the rivers Wyre, Carrog and Wyre Fach meet before flowing into the sea and along the coast to the south of the village there are several fine examples of old lime kilns.
For bird watchers, the large, flat coastal fields around Llanrhystud attract migrant pipits, wheatears and wagtails, including smallflocks of white wagtails in late April plus red kites, choughs and skylarks.
St Rhystud's church dates back to 1852, replacing an earlier
14th century site (or earlier) although the font belongs to the original church
and is an impressive stone basin with a lead lining.
