|Borth is a village overlooking the Dovey Estuary with a sandy beach, and caravan and camping sites nearby. It has the unique feature of an ancient submerged forest, visible at low tide along the beach, where stumps of oak, pine, birch, willow and hazel (preserved by the acid anaerobic conditions in the peat) can be seen. Radiocarbon dating suggests these trees died about 1500 BC.
Cors Fochno, a raised peat mire, part of the only UNESCO Biosphere reserve in Wales is located next to the village together with the Dyfi National Nature Reserve and visitors' centre at Ynyslas. The long distance footpath the Dyfi Valley Way passes through the village.
