Aberdovey, or Aberdyfi in Welsh, is a picturesque seaside town home to an exquisite beach just five miles away from the park. The village itself is charming and tranquil and there is plenty to see and do when you visit Aberdovey. The shops here are known for their simplicity, selling homemade ice cream, buckets and spades, and arts and crafts. But it’s this humble nature of the quaint town that increases its appeal. The pastel-painted shops and houses are far-removed from anything garish or touristy and are, quite simply, a quintessential Welsh postcard.
