Borth is part of the Dyfi Biosphere, the only UNESCO Biosphere reserve in Wales, plus the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and visitors' centre at Ynyslas. The long distance footpath, the Ceredigion Coast Path, passes through Borth village.
Borth is served by the Cambrian Coast rail line and there is a youth hostel in the village. For beach safety, Borth features an inshore lifeboat station and local attractions include the Borth Animalarium and Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club, one of Wales’s oldest links courses. The Borth railway museum is well worth a visit.
