The west facing beach is a long stretch of sand and pebbles backed by sand dunes. It spans 7 kilometres of the coast line, from Tywyn town in the North, to the harbour at Aberdyfi in the south. Tywyn bathing water is located within the Lleyn Peninsula and the Sarnau Special Area of Conservation, with the Dyfi Site of Special Scientific Interest just to the south, confirming the high conservation status of the area.

Sandy beach catching westerly swells and therefore popular with surfers. Dolphins sometimes seen. Good walks with spectacular views of Cardigan Bay.
