Fly a Kite


One of the best things for hours of fun is to fly a kite! Aberdyfi is unspoiled with four miles of fine, sandy beaches and sheltered dunes. It is a huge expanse of sandy beach which stretches from the Dovey Estuary and harbour of Aberdyfi several miles to the north to the seaside town of Tywyn. There is no better place when there is a breeze on the coast to send a kite soaring through the air!

Find the fairies


Ynysmaengwyn just outside of Tywyn, is a woodland that has a hidden fairy glen for you to look for, a secret walled garden, the remains of the once grand mansion owned by the Corbett Family of Tywyn, a park and a dovecote and all of these cost absolutely nothing!

See Red Kites soaring
