The beautiful coast at Aberdovey is a 25 minute drive away, also accessible on the train from Machynlleth. Explore this stunning beach and walk all the way to Tywyn if you want! The beach is very dog-friendly, with only the first few hundred metres unavailable for dog walking in the main season (31 March - 31 October).
A little further north at Talyllyn lies the stunning Llyn Mwyngil, a glacial lake at the foot of Cadair Idris. Talyllyn is also the railhead for the narrow gauge steam Talyllyn Railway, which runs down to the coast at Tywyn.
