Llanrhystud is a small community in a beautiful stretch of Cardigan Bay. It has a long beach – approximately half a mile long – with a shingle bank and sand at low tide. The wide expanse of beach, with its panoramic view of Cardigan Bay is a popular spot for swimming, boating, fishing and watersports. The Coast Path runs along the back of the beach, with this stretch passing 5 historic lime kilns at the southern end.

The beach lies in a Special Landscape Area and is also part of an area that has been designated as Heritage Coast, recognition that this is one of the finest stretches of undeveloped coast in England and Wales.

A mile east of the village, a steep hill is crowned by the remarkable Iron Age earthworks of Gaer Penrhôs. From this vantage point, you can look into the mountains around the head of the Ystwyth Valley as well as over Cardigan Bay.

There’s a great circular walk along the Wyre Valley to the northeast, taking you through woodland, across farmland and along part of the Ceredigion Coast Path. You can also do a circle to the south via Llanon and see two other forts at Castell Mawr and Castell Bach. The eastern part of this circuit can also be ridden on a horse or mountain bike.

The village itself has local amenities including pub, post office, convenience store and filling station. The beach is reached by a single track road from Llanrhystud which leads to free parking.
