A narrow lane from Minffordd leads to a small parking area amongst oak trees overlooking the wide Afon Dwyryd estuary. The shore looks out towards the island of Ynys Gifftan in the centre of the estuary. Just to the north is a small sandy cove, whilst to the south the sandy shore is backed by a small area of saltmarsh. Signs warn that swimming is dangerous due to strong currents. The sand has very little gradient, and will flood quickly on a rising tide - something to be aware of if venturing any distance from the shore.
Directions : From the A497 in the village of Minffordd, take the turning signposted for Portmeirion. Instead of then turning right for Portmeirion, continue straight along the lane to the parking area at the very end.
