The Mawddach Estuary is located on the west coast of Wales between the town of Barmouth to the north and Fairbourne to the south. The great beauty of the Mawddach estuary is well documented. The famous Victorian John Ruskin said that there is "no better walk than from Barmouth through to Dolgellau other than from Dolgellau to Barmouth". The views of the Snowdonia mountains sweeping down to the Mawddach estuary are phenomenal.

Walkers, cyclists and nature lovers appreciate the Mawddach estuary and indeed the southern bank of the Mawddach estuary, along which used to run a section of the GWR branch line from Ruabon to Barmouth, has now been designated the Mawddach Trail, an 8 mile path running from Dolgellau to Morfa Mawddach, at the southern side of the Barmouth railway bridge. It is managed by the Snowdonia National Park Authority as a leisure route for walkers and cyclists, and is part of the Sustrans Cross-Wales Cycling Route.

The River Mawddach rises to the north of Rhobell Fawr (734m) and Ddualt (657m) and flows south west through Ganllwyd, Llanelltyd and Penmaenpool before spilling into Cardigan Bay. Given good water levels the Mawddach can be a superb angling river with good fishing for salmon, sea trout and eels. Worm, fly, spinner and shrimp are effective methods depending on water levels. From mid season onwards salmon can be seen in the Mawddach and the Mawddach's largest tributary the Wnion is a very fine sea trout river, while the smaller River Eden is also a valuable game fishery. The confluence of the Eden and the Mawddach is a particularly good section.

The town of Barmouth, originally a fishing village renowned for its boat building, has been a popular seaside resort for many years. The older houses cling to the side of the rocky hill that shelters Barmouth from the north, while the more recent buildings are huddled together between the beach and the rocky hillside.

There is no shortage of pubs and restaurants; the harbour front is a particularly popular spot for al-fresco refreshments and seafood fayre. Moreover, the children are well catered for by the Fun Fair on the promenade.

Whether you want a fun seaside family holiday, or a relaxing harbour town to chill out, Barmouth has it all.

The beach at Barmouth has a wide expanse of sand that never seems to be overcrowded even at the peak of the season. Whether you want a quiet spot to relax or like to play fun and games with all the family there is enough room on Barmouth beach for everybody. If your children like crabbing they will love Barmouth.
