Barmouth Beach

Barmouth beach is a large family sandy beach and perfect for sunbathing, games and surfing.

The beach is located on the north bank of the river Mawddach on the west coast of Wales, just within the south west corner of Snowdonia National Park. The Mawddach Estuary is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest and offers visitors a range of walks, and it is popular for bird spotters and those wishing to get away from it all.

Barmouth old town is well worth a visit with its slate-roofed cottages on the side of a mountain, whilst it’s harbour is beautiful and you can walk across the spectacular Barmouth Bridge spanning the river.

Barmouth beach is a town beach and so has easy access to a range of facilities including car parks, shops, pubs, accommodation and amusement arcades.
