The whole Reserve is made up of three parts: Cors Fochno, an internationally important peat bog; Dyfi Estuary, an internationally important feeding ground for thousands of wading birds and the beach and sand dunes of Ynyslas, enjoyed by around quarter of a million people every year.
Ynyslas dunes are remarkable. They are still growing, day by day, millimetre by millimetre, providing a home for many rare plants and insects. When you visit, you can see the process taking place. Earth, sea and wind in action. In the summer, the sand dunes are transformed into a colourful carpet of wild flowers and are especially renowned for their rare orchids.
And then there's the submerged forest ... the remains of tree trunks which appear at low tide, from the days when the shingle ridge was further out to sea.
