out and about

Barmouth sits at the mouth of the River Mawddach with views of the estuary and hills of Snowdonia to die for. There are miles of glorious sandy beaches, bicycle routes, long distance trails to explore, and forests criss-crossed with mountain bike trails.

You may prefer a relaxing holiday enjoying the beautiful Barmouth beaches. The beaches are so big you have the choice of traditional donkey rides and all the fun of the fair, or else choose to relax and find a secluded spot to enjoy lazing in the warm Welsh sunshine.

The clear blue waters of Cardigan Bay are popular with holidaymakers for paddling , swimming, and windsurfing, and there is a wealth of wildlife to discover including dolphins, porpoises and, if you are very fortunate, even leather back turtles!

There are regular wild life exploration boat trips from the harbour, but if you don’t trust your sea legs then there is always the option to join the children for the ever popular crab fishing from the Barmouth innerĀ  harbour wall. The more serious anglers might prefer fishing from the outer breakwater at the mouth of the estuary.
