Llanrhystud is a half-mile long sandy beach at low tide, backed by a storm bank of shingle. Heading south the shore becomes rockier, backed by low cliffs where you will find the remains of five historic lime kilns next to the path. To the north is the Afon (river) Wyre, and the shore beyond here is rocky and backed by a large caravan park. On clear days the beach has views towards Snowdonia to the north and Bardsey Island to the north-west.
Ceredigion Coast Path passes through the village and along the beach where part of it continues along the top of a shingle bank, which has been levelled as much as possible to provide a reasonable walking surface.
The beach is popular for a late swim, surfing, a barbecue or just to sit and watch the sun go down.
Dogs are allowed all year but please be considerate to other beach users and remember you must always clean up after your dog.
