Highlights

Just some of the Highlights from the local area
  • Beach Activities

    The very shallow gradient of the sandy beach invites safe bathing, surfing and beach games.

  • Fishing

    Fishing is good from the beach and the rocks at the southern end. Although Bass are the main target, many species of ray and flatfish are also caught and mackerel when the conditions are right.

  • Walking

    The coastal path to Aberystwyth is recommended. Less demanding are the paths inland of the village along the River Leri and around the Dyfi nature reserve. For the more ambitious, Cader Idris and Snowdon are both good walks on a fine day.

  • Bird Watching

    Sea birds are always in evidence - gulls, cormorants, gannets, terns, lapwings and shearwaters. Red kites patrol the tide line too. Local rarities include choughs, peregrines and ospreys. The Dyfi Osprey Project nest site is a must to visit.

  • Golf

    Borth has a fine 18 hole links golf course. There are three other courses within a short distance

  • Cycling

    There are many cycle routes nearby and a healthy cycling scene in the area. From flat circular routes to more demanding hill climbs. Mountain Biking is also well catered for with serveral trails at Nant yr Arian MTB centre, more trails around Machynlleth and Coed y Brenin not too far away as well.

  • Dolphin Watching

    It is possible to watch dolphins and porpoises from the comfort of our lounge sofa, and boat trips are available from nearby Aberystwyth and Newquay
