"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Barmouth Beach

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.

Tell us what you think about Barmouth Beach

A long sandy beach and popular family destination on Cardigan Bay in the Snowdonia national park. 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.
