Parking is on the beach so check out tide times. There are also lots of paths through the dunes. We had gone prepared with our thermos flask... More

So many happy childhood memories of this beach. It's massive! Just be aware of incoming tides so you don't get cut off. You park on the sand. Reasonable price. There's an nature reserve information centre with basic snacks and a coffee machine. Some benches outside of it and toilets available. Other than that, it's just nature. From the car park... More

Well worth the trip. Bought some fish and chips in Borth and a beer to open on the beach next to dunes. One of the best beaches in West Wales

Our in-laws live near here so we're relatively frequent visitors. It's such a lovely wide open space and a great place for a walk even when the weather isn't perfect. We love taking the dogs there, as it's such a lovely safe space for running around.

Here with a group of 6th form students completing dune transects. Very lucky with the weather got to appreciate the scenery. Worth a visit if you are out this way or have taken the train from the West Midlands to Borth. Need a place to stay? Try the youth hostel if you need to save money. They do a very... More

I first came here over 50 years ago and loved it then as a small child. Really appreciated its beauty this time around, a vast and peaceful beach with lovely views all around. Good parking and space for all kinds of activities, well worth a visit.

Wonderful vast expanse of sandy beach, great place to relax and walk your dog. Cars can drive onto the beach, just be wary of the tidal nature of the estuary.
