Morfa Harlech is the more northerly of the two major sand dune systems that extend along the Meironydd coastline from the Mawddach Estuary. The special features for which Morfa Harlech has received such a high level of conservation designations include not just the sand dunes but also the associated seashore, saltmarsh and grassland habitats each of which is home to many wildlife species. A very short walk off the beaten track into the dune systems takes you into a quiet world that feels a million miles from sandcastles, candyfloss and amusement arcades!
