Things to do and See in Borth


Borth and its Beach

Borth is a quiet seaside village which has avoided the usual commercialisation and as a result only becomes busy when, depending on the weather and school holidays, visitors are drawn to one of the best beaches in West Wales. The long sandy beach is safe and ideal for families, it is also a popular surfing beach and is perfect for other watersports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing.

Borth Animalarium

A popular attraction for visitors to Borth is the Animalarium, a collection of unusual and interesting animals along with breeding pairs and colonies of exotic and endangered species whose natural environment is under threat.

Borth and Ynyslas Golf Course

The premier 18 hole links golf course, one of the oldest in Wales is just 300 yds from the hotel. Visitors are welcome with no joining fee and guests at Glanmor Hotel are entitled to discount vouchers towards green fees.

Nature Reserves

To the north of the golf course is the extensive Ynyslas Sand Dune Nature Reserve which includes an educational visitor centre. To the East, bordering the tidal River Leri, is Cors Fochno, a protected wetland which is a feeding ground for both resident and migratory birds.

Local Amenities

Within the village of Borth, as well as the usual small shops, there are three public houses, two of which provide food along with a few restaurants and a recently opened Tandoori curry house.
