Barmouth is one of the most picturesque resorts on the Welsh coast and is surrounded by the majestic splendour of the Snowdonia National Park. A traditional seaside resort, Barmouth is ideal for family holidays with miles of soft golden sands and safe paddling in the bathing waters of Cardigan Bay. The vast beach is never overcrowded and there is always plenty of room for a game of volleyball, rounders or sandcastle building. A 'land train' runs the length of the promenade and traditional donkey rides, swing boats and amusement arcades provide fun for all ages.
