A popular resort on the entrance to the beautiful Mawddach Estuary. Pretty harbour is overlooked by the headland of Dinas Oleu, birthplace of the National Trust. Lots to see and do – traditional seaside fun on the promenade and in the small fairground, two miles of superb sandy beach, good choice of accommodation. Take a walk up into the hills for panoramic views of sea and mountains, or follow the Mawddach Trail along the idyllic old rail route to Dolgellau. There’s much to see in the town itself, including the Sailors’ Institute located around the harbour along with Tŷ Gwyn’s ‘shipwreck museum’ and Tŷ Crwn Round House. There’s also a Lifeboat Museum. Discover it all on the town heritage trail. Click here if you would like a copy of the Barmouth Town Guide.
