Morfa Dyffryn National Nature Reserve
Llanbedr, Gwynedd



Morfa Dyffryn is a spectacular National Nature Reserve with natural sand dune system offering a view of Penllyn, a glance of Enlli and a long beach of golden sand. The sand dune system expands from Afon Ysgethin in the south to Afon Artro in the north - which is about 7km in length and developed on the coast of Cardigan Bay in Ardudwy. Unlike many other sand dunes in Wales Morfa Dyffryn dunes are very dynamic. The front dunes are steep, with many gaps which allow wind to break through to the site and change the shape frequently- and bury much of the old habitats. That's why the dunes are so bare and open, without any growth apart from a little sea-grass, and young plants and habitats that are very rare in Wales.

The Countryside Council for Wales is committed to creating opportunities for everyone to enjoy the countryside. National Nature Reserves are no exception. On some reserves the Countryside Council for Wales has provided additional paths. On others, access on foot is unrestricted and visitors are welcome to wander freely. Where possible, the Countryside Council also provide facilities to add to visitors' enjoyment of reserves such as bird hides, information points, guided walks and displays, and facilities for the disabled. Signs at entrances welcome visitirs to each reserve and provide basic information.

Safety: The Countryside Council for Wales makes every attempt to ensure that your visit to a reserve is enjoyable and safe. But visitors should also be aware of their own safety. Please watch out for hazards and wear appropriate clothes and footwear for your visit.

This work was commissioned by the Countryside Council for Wales as part of its programme of research into sustaining natural beauty, wildlife and outdoor enjoyment in rural Wales and its inshore waters.
