Ynyslas Beach, Wales, UK.
View of Ynyslas Beach & Dunes,UK
My favorite beach is the Ynyslas Beach, which is in Wales in the United Kingdom. The nearest towns are Borth and Aberystwyth, about 15 minutes by car. The area is mostly made up of a large area of sand dunes and a long beach, which follows the coastline into the estuary of the River Dyfi. There is also a golf course directly on the East side of the sand dunes, which runs for a couple of miles up to Borth.
What I like about this beach is how quiet and peaceful it is. Even in the height of the summer season, you can always have peace and quiet. There's no feeling cramped into a corner on the beach or being disturbed, like at the busier beaches I have been to.
The Ynyslas sand dunes form part of the Dyfi Nature Reserve. There's lots wildlife here such as foxes, lizards, rabbits, stoats and voles and many species of birds, moths and butterflies. There's wooden walkways through the dunes, where you can see the great view, especially the sunset. The sunset at here is breathtaking as it always sets directly out over the sea. There's 2 parking lots pretty convenient to the beach.
Although I've never tried it, kite-surfing is very popular here. When the tide is out, there's about an extra mile of shoreline, where the surfers take off! There's also water surfing, wave runners and flying microlight aircraft, too.
The beach is also great to visit in the winter. Seeing snow on the beach is quite a sight! However it is a good idea to wrap up warm very warm, as the one of the drawbacks of the beach, is the constant wind which blows off the Irish Sea. It can be pretty bitter in the winter.
It's not tropical at all as most of the world famous beaches, but has lots of rugged beauty!
