Water Sports in Borth Watersports

The safe, sandy beach of Borth is ideal for watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. The length of the beach means there is plenty of room for all. The best surf is usually found near the lifeboat station at the southern end of Borth whereas windsurfing and kitesurfing is better at the northern end of the beach. If you don't intend to participate yourself simply sitting on the beach watching the spectacle can be entertainment in itself.
