Borth Beach

Visit Borth Beach

Award winning Borth Beach has three miles of golden sandy beach and is an ever popular destination for families. This Blue Flag beach is safe for paddling and having a swim, with life guards on duty during the summer season from July to September.

On the south side of the beach the are holiday parks with facilities and plenty of places to eat and drink in the area. In addition there are Coastal cottages, bed and breakfast and self catering holiday accommodation along the beach.

Borth Beach is home to the legend, mentioned in the Black Book of Carmarthen (the oldest surviving Welsh manuscript), of a sunken land called Cantre’r Gwaelod – which disappeared under the waters of Cardigan Bay.  The forest on Borth beach made the news in 2014 and 2019 when it was uncovered by storms. After which, even more of the petrified forest appears, and the beaches are covered with tree stumps.

If you fancy a round of golf, the Borth & Ynyslas Golf Club is located at the northern end of the beach.
