Morfa Madryn reserve has been created as a disturbance-free area for birds to feed, rest and breed. The reserve is an important nesting site for lapwing and attracts a good variety of birds all year round, particularly wildfowl and waders, as does the adjoining Traeth Lafan mudflats, which is an area of European importance. In addition, Traeth Lafan, Glan y Mr Elias and Morfa Madryn, together, form a Local Nature Reserve. Near the entrance is a small picnic area and recently planted woodland. There area three bird hides on the reserve, one with excellent views of the high tide oystercatcher roost on the shingle spit at Glan y Mr Elias and the other two with close-up views of the birds on the reserves pools.
