Barmouth Beach

Beach, free entry


LL42 1NE


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 water sports - 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.

Blue Flag beach. Toilets and parking. Dog restrictions apply April to end September.
