Fodor's Review

About 9 miles up the coast from Aberystwyth is Ynyslas Beach (pronounced "Inn-iss-lass"), a popular local beauty spot. Where the River Dyfi flows into the sea at Cardigan Bay, enormous dunes undulate from the sandy beach in a network of hillocks crisscrossed by wooden bridges. Ynyslas Beach is part of a nature reserve that is home to several species of butterfly and—unusual for the British Isles—lizards. The strong currents make the sea here unsuitable for swimming. Ynyslas is 8 miles north of Aberystwyth on the B4572. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free). Best for: sunsets.
