"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Fairbourne Beach Weather and Tides

The beach is a 5 kilometre stretch of sand, backed by a large embankment of pebbles, which provides a natural and effective flood defence. At the north of the beach is the Mawddach Estuary, whilst the south is backed by steep cliffs. A short distance along the shore are tank traps dating from the second world war, known locally as "Dragon's Teeth". The bathing water lies within the Lleyn Peninsula and the Sarnau Special Area of Conservation. The northern end of the beach is designated as part of the Mawddach Estuary Site of Special Scientific Interest, whilst the area to the south of the beach is designated the Glannau Tonfanau I Friog Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
