A beautiful beach. Less stunning looking back from the beach
Sep 2021
A strange town. One small row of nice victorian houses, some awful modern buildings and then a static caravan park. The beach deserves better! The beach is lovely however and goes on for miles.

Beautiful Beach
Aug 2021
Lovely long beach with a mixture of sand and pebbles that was clean and not crowded. The promenade runs along side it meaning you can be close to the beach if you use a wheelchair or pram. As we were staying close to the beach we didn't need to check out the facilities so cannot pass comment.

Great place for a stroll
May 2021
Tywyn beach has a wide Victorian promenade, which makes a pleasant spot for a stroll. The Victorian entrepreneur who paid for it, Corbett wanted it to rival Aberystwyth and the south coast resorts. Its oversized for a town of 3,000 people, but this does mean there is plenty of space. Even on busy days at the bank holiday, you still don't feel too crowded.

For those who have been visiting after a long break, in 2011 the coastal defences were changed. This has improved a lot the amount of sand on the beach. In Welsh Tywyn means sand dune so its appropriate to get sand back. At high tide the sea comes up to the base of the promenade (meaning little beach immediately in front). If you want to build sand castles, check the tide times! For a longer stroll you can walk north to the mouth of the Dysynni estuary. This has great views inland to bird rock, masses of wild flowers and is a good spot for bird watching. Walking south there is lots of pink thrift and other coastal flowers. At low tide, a sunken forest sometimes appears (depending on the sand shifting). If you keep walking you eventually reach the next small town, Aberdovey.

The town has an interesting history and its worth taking a few minutes to read the informative boards put up by the Tywyn and district history society, with Lottery funding. It includes the enterprising but not very likeable Corbett, an early visit by Charles Darwin, and how men who were stationed here in the war took their family here for peacetime holidays.

The seafront is ideal for people with mobility considerations and my grandmother enjoyed her visits into her mid 90s. Apart from a stroll, there are two ice cream shops, a pub, a convenience store and a cafe. Behind the cafe is a well maintained children's play area and toilets. Immediately behind this is an outdoor leisure park with putting, crazy golf, tennis courts and other games. Most of the other things you can 'do' in Tywyn are 10-15 minutes walk inland - the steam railway, regular railway station, the main shops in the hight street and other eating places. Tywyn is an unfussy places to stay with a convenient range of useful shops, which are great for a self catering break of picking up picnic supplies.

We have been walking along the promenade for quite a few days as it's a really good place for a walk. It's great to see the different things that go with the time of year.

Bracing walk
Oct 2020 • Couples
We visited Tywyn after an excellent day on the nearby narrow guage railway. Walking along the promenade was most enjoyable. Although most shops including the fish and chip shop were closed there were plenty of people enjoying the Autumn sun. The beach looked welcoming. We would like to come back in the summer.

A lovely late summer visit!
Sep 2020 • Family
We had a great time on the sandy beach making sandcastles and having a little dip / swim. The water is quite shallow for a long way so my little 18m old child could have a little paddle safely. Lovely amount of different seashells and stones for decorating our sandcastles and no dogs were allowed on the part we were on which was great.

Lovely sunsets.

Watched the sun sink below the horizon which was on a par with African sunsets. A walk along the seafront was so peaceful .
