You will find the lovely Barmouth Beach towards the south of Snowdonia – it is the most popular beach resort in the area. It attracts a great many visitors all through the summer months, but it is fortunately a large beach, which means it never becomes too crowded. Don’t worry: you’ll have plenty of space to put your towels down!

The beautiful golden sands are expansive, making it the perfect location for a family day out at the beach. It’s great for a spot of beach volleyball or a kickabout, and of course it’s perfect for building a sandcastle or two, replete with moats.

Lovers of water sports will like it here, too, as you can partake in a bit of sailing, surfing, kayaking, wind surfing and even jet skiing. In terms of sand and water quality, Barmouth Beach has been granted the prestigious Blue Flag Award, as well as a recommendation from the Marine Conservation Society, so you know you’re heading to a beautifully clean beach.

There is a café by the beach, and at low tide you can walk all the way to Harlech, taking in the wonderful views over the Tremadog Bay. Perfect if you’re looking to get away from it all.
