Water Sports

Be aware : Tides

Sailing :

Dovey Yacht Club is a very friendly club catering for Dinghies, Cruisers and Sailboards and Kitesurfers. It is probably the best located Yacht Club in Wales with stunning views over the Dovey estuary.

Kite Surfing :

Check out these folks if feeling adventurous.

Sea Rowing :

Aberdovey has one of the most active, and successful, sea rowing clubs in Wales. There are frequent training sessions, race events and the odd epic crossing of the Irish Sea but probably best start with a taster row on a Saturday morning.

Swimming :

For the reasonably fit there is nothing better than a swim from Aberdovey beach to the Penhelig Arms for a pint.

N.B. Only recommended at slack water or flooding tide and as conditions permit.



Aberdovey and Tywyn on the mid Wales coast are surrounded by sea, rivers and lakes, making it one of the best all round fishing locations available.

Rivers around Aberdovey and Tywyn include:

  • Dyfi
  • Dysynni
  • Mawddach
  • Wnion

For local shore fishing there are a few venues on offer including:

  • Dyfi estuary accessible from Aberdovey on the north side
  • Trefeddian 3-mile stretch of flat sand between Aberdovey and Tywyn.
  • Tonfannau, the Afon Dysinni flows out to sea right by a boulder-bank, the Sarn Y Bwch Causeway



Some fabulous eating options include:

Bay of Bengal,

Fish and chip shop. With a bottle of red wine from the CostCutter – marvelous.



Or simply relax. The view from the house is quite remarkable – and will change throughout the day as the tides (and weather) come and go.
