About

Barmouth is southern Snowdonia's most popular seaside resort. The town's beach, Abermaw, is west facing with a mixture of sand and some fine shingle and is ideal for bathing and watersports. There are some breathtaking views of Cardigan Bay and the picturesque harbour. The town can get busy, a land train runs along the promenade and there are traditional donkey rides, swing boats and amusement arcades, but the beach itself is vast and easily big enough to get away from it all. There is good disabled access to the beach and all leisure amenities, including a full range of shops, cafes and pubs are within a short distance of the beach.

There are several delightful walks of varying distance which start in Barmouth and follow routes into the hills beyond. At low tide it is possible to walk all the way to Harlech to the north with wonderful views over Tremadog Bay. The town is located on Route 8 of the National Cycle Network and the traffic free trail from Barmouth to Dolgellau along the Mawddach Estuary offers spectacular views.

Toilets and parking. Dogs are banned from the area of beach between the leisure centre and the river from 1st April to 30th September. There is still a reasonable sized section of beach that is dog friendly year round.
