Aberdovey is a gorgeous town. The highlight is, of course, the beach – four miles of beautiful sand, backed by sand dunes and an eighteen-hole links golf course. There is plenty to do around the town. For the active visitor, there is an impressive range of activities – putting green, tennis courts, crab fishing, walks, kite flying, playground/swings, tennis, bowls, golf, sailing and loads more. Aberdovey is also a lovely place to potter around, with a range of beautiful shops (clothes, gifts, artwork), nice coffee shops, pubs, butcher, convenience store, deli etc.
Further afield, there are great day trips. One of our favourite days out is to walk along the beach to Tywyn (takes about an hour and a half), where there is a lovely café for lunch. You can then walk or get the train back. Other day trips include the Dolgellau Falls, Talyllyn Railway, the Centre for Alternative Technology, the Bearded Lake and plenty more.
