Ynyslas Sand Dunes

Ynyslas sand dunes located slightly north of Borth and reaching onto the Dyfi Estuary is part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and home to many rare plants and animals. In the summer the dunes naturally transform into a colourful carpet of wild flowers including many rare types of orchid. Substantial work is completed in the effort to sustain the area's biodiversity in balance with its use.

Visitors are allowed to drive onto the sands and park near the visitor centre that has interpretation displays and toilets. A boardwalk through the dunes leads to the stunning beach made up of three miles of golden sands.

The nearby 18 hole golf course is one of the oldest Links courses in Wales.
