Tywyn Beach

Tywyn Beach

Tywyn has a long sandy beach interspersed with groynes at regular intervals, and backed by a sea wall and promenade. Dog restrictions apply from April 1st to September 30th on the main section of the beach - a distance of about ½ mile, and signs warn of weever fish at low tide. There are plenty of free parking areas along the promenade and facilities include ice-cream shops and take-aways, drinking water, toilets, a small children's paddling pool and a recreation ground with tennis courts. The main town has a good selection of shops, banks, pubs, hotels and a railway station (about 600 yards from beach). The narrow gauge (2' 3") Talyllyn railway runs from here along the Afon Fathew valley to Abergynolwyn.

Tywyn is a good surf beach and the best conditions occur either side of the high tide. South of the slipway is the most popular area and it's a good beach for beginners. A cross current can be a bit of a problem as the water flows to fill the extensive Dovey estuary.
