Barmouth beach is large and perfect for sunbathing and games and surfers can often be seen depending on the swells and time of year.
The Sunday Times likes bright and breezy Barmouth, describing it as ‘the perfect seaside resort, backed by jagged crags, fronted by ash-blonde sands and bordered by the dramatic Mawddach Estuary’.
Barmouth is southern Snowdonia’s most popular seaside resort. In summer, its big sandy beach is a magnet for visitors, yet there’s so much space along miles of unbroken sands that it never gets overcrowded.
There’s a picturesque harbour too, perched on the mouth of the beautiful Mawddach Estuary – fishing, sea and estuary trips depart from here. Barmouth is well located for watersports – there’s easy access to the sea via a slipway on the beach, though a craft exclusion zone is in place to protect swimmers.
As a fully fledged seaside resort Barmouth comes complete with all the expected amenities and attractions – shops, cafés and restaurants, good parking, amusements and entertainments.
There’s good disabled access to the beach too, and the resort is well served by public transport.
