Llanstephan in the Towy (Tywi) Estuary.
The river Towy (Tywi) rises on the slopes of the Cambrian Mountains in mid Wales and flows south to join the sea at an estuary bordered by the two picturesque villages of Llanstephan and Ferryside. The estuary is also the release to the sea of two other rivers the Tâf and Gwendraeth. The mouth of the Towy is guarded by a 12th Century castle at Llanstephan. The Towy is famous for its salmon and sea-trout. It is also home to a dwindling fleet of coracles, (a small lightweight boat made of a framework of willow originally covered with an outer layer of animal skin and made water proof with a sealing of tar), the coracle used in pairs with a net in between to catch the salmon and sea-trout.
