Fishing in Wales: Tywyn
Tywyn has fishing on the Estuary and on North and South Beaches. The Estuary is the south side of the Dysinni and is a mixture of sand, shingle and rocks. The most notable rock mark is probably Dysynni Rocks.
North Beach is mainly sand, but has patches of shingle. There are also the peaty remains of a prehistoric forest.
South Beach is mainly clean sand with breakwaters at its northern end and a patch of rock at its south.
Fish include eels, bass, garfish, mullet, turbot, dogfish, whiting, rays, plaice. There are also sewin (sea trout), mainly in the estuary, which may be fished for with a licence.
For North Beach, from Bryn Awel Square, Tywyn, near the railway station, take the Sandilands road heading north, bearing right just before the level crossing. The beach starts just past the caravan park and runs northwards. There is plenty of roadside parking.
To reach the estuary, follow the same directions as for North Beach, but continue up the road as far as the railway bridge over the river where there is parking along both sides of the road. Footpaths lead to the water.
For South beach, from Bryn Awel Square take Ffordd y Pier (Pier Road) down to the promenade, where there is a car park.
