Surfing at Borth beach
The coastline of Wales is known for its outstanding surfing spots, arguably some of the best in the UK. 3 miles of sand and shingle make Borth an uplifting, slightly wild place for a surf. It’s best experienced at high tide, particularly if it’s a stormy day with a large south-westerly swell. Keep an eye out for the remains of the ancient sunken forest of Cantre’r Gwaelod – at low tide you’ll be able to see prehistoric tree stumps and peat in the sand.
