Afon Wen is a wide beach of sand and shingle, backed by banks of boulder clay and some sea defence walls. Most of the beach's visitors come from the Hafan-y-Mor holiday park which is on the western side. The beach has a very shallow gradient, making it generally safe for swimming and paddling. It can be reached by a narrow lane from the Afon Wen roundabout on the A497, which leads down to a bridge under the railway. There is very limited space here for both parking and turning. Access to the beach from here is a level walk of about 200 yards along a gravel path. Dogs are allowed at all times.
