Gilfach yr Halen is probably the least appealing of all Ceredigion's beaches. Situated below the Gilfach holiday village, it is mostly rocks and shingle with some small patches of course sand, and backed by cliffs of boulder clay and slates. The small stream of Afon Cwinten emerges onto the shore.

Directions : From the village of Llwyncelyn on the A487, a narrow lane leads to and through the holiday village, crossing a small stream at the bottom of the valley. A stony track forks off here and leads down to the shore. There is limited space for roadside parking under the trees, but care must be taken not to cause obstruction. Gilfach yr Halen translates as 'Salt Bay'. Dogs are allowed at all times.

The photos were taken 1 hour before low tide.
