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 & Seaside Award beach. Toilets and parking. Dog restrictions apply April to end September.
