Ynys-hir mixes Welsh oak woodland with wet grassland and saltmarshes.
In the spring, the ground is carpeted in flowers, and birdsong fills the air. You might see flycatchers and redstarts emerging from the nestboxes.
Summer brings wading birds, such as lapwings and redshanks, and some very special butterflies too. Then in the colder months, ducks and geese move in.
Feast your eyes from any of our seven hides – look out for birds of prey. Then round off your visit with a snack at the visitors' centre. Please take care on the paths as some are rugged.
The reserve is open from dawn to dusk. The visitor centre is open daily 9 am-5 pm from April to October and 10 am-4 pm from November to March.
