There are many compelling reasons to visit. It’s surely one of Britain’s prettiest little seaside resorts. Located where the River Dyfi meets the waters of Cardigan Bay, it’s also a popular sailing and watersports venue (The Sunday Times listed it as one of the best beaches in Britain ‘for a spot of windsurfing or kitesurfing’). Pastel-coloured terraces front the large sandy beach and quaint old harbour. Golf is also popular here: Aberdyfi’s famous links course is one of the UK’s finest. Local museum is dedicated to the port’s shipbuilding past.
