Borth-y-Gest is a harbour side village
situated on the side of the Glaslyn estuary, and however that
may sound, there are some very pretty coves along the side of
the estuary towards Morfa Bychan and Black Rock Sands that you
can walk to from Borth-y-Gest - access isn't too good though and
the village can get congested as the car park isn't massive.
The village has toilets, a small shop and cafe which overlooks
the estuary to the mountains beyond. The harbour itself is quite
muddy lower down, however the coves along the estuary are of
good sand, especially towards the high tide mark. Care should be
taken with the tides along the estuary as they can quickly turn
and sand bars quickly disappear.
