WEST BEACH - SA43 3LR
EAST BEACH - SA43 1PP
Near the large town of Cardigan, take the small road to St. Dogmaels with lots of space here for parking and walking.
A long sandy beach with sand dunes along the estuary with plenty of scope for water sport, given appropriate weather conditions.
The start of Pembrokeshire Coastal Path is nearby, you can drive up to the top of the hill just after the Youth Hostel and park in one of the small car parks high up.
From there it is nice to walk along the coastal path, which is much safer than the other places.
At Poppit Sands there is a good cafe and shop on the beach, and toilet facilities too.
Most beaches going up the coast are mostly stone & shingle but there are some that are sandy.
BORTH: SY24 5JA
A fabulous three mile expanse of golden sands.
At the northern end of the beach is an ancient sunken forest, that is exposed at low tide and is a spectacle not to be missed.
CLARACH: SY23 3DT
As well as a sandy beach, which lies against a shingle ridge, other ice age fatues to explore include the sandstone and grit rocks, with sea caves and rock pools, and fossils in the corrugated rock platforms.
LLANON: SY23 5LX
Llanon’s beach is of pebble and stone with areas of sand exposed at low tide.
LLANRHYSTUD: SY23 5BU
The pebble beach at Llanrhystud is popular in summer for boating, fishing, watersports, picnics or just relaxing.
The beach is a narrow shingle bank at high tide, but at low tide it becomes wide and sandy.
YNYSLAS: SY24 5JZ
Ynyslas sand dunes located slightly north of Borth and reaching onto the Dyfi Estuary is part of the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and home to many rare plants and animals.
In the summer the dunes naturally transform into a colourful carpet of wild flowers including many rare types of orchid.
Visitors are allowed to drive onto the sands and park near the visitor centre that has interpretation displays and toilets.
