me nad my family were after a day out in the summer holidays so we decided on barmouth,i hadn't been there since i was a child and only have memory of driving through it.
It was a lovely warm summers day and we got to barmouth for about half 9 and was a lovely drive from where i live through the valleys
We parked in te main car park by the RNLI station and was about £4 all day...great. We had a walk into the shops for a bucket and spade and all seemed very pleasant the only problem was the pavements are very small and made life difficult with a pushchair. We stopped and had breakfast which was pricey for what it was and then headed to the beach...wow it was the best beach i have been to in the uk. Lovely near whiteish sand and sea so blue it was wonderful.
I went swimming in the sea with my daughter there was no litter no horrible sea weed or rocks just pure water and sand.Also what was great was the view hills and high peaks and valleys all rolling down to beach. What i found very cool was the RAF using this as a pass for training so you would always hear or see fast jets. My only complaint was that it got a little busy and overcrowded we only stayed til two as we had a long drive back. I was quite down coming back as i knew this would be the last seaside i would see this year and what a nice place it was to visit.
There was alot of things for the visitor to do,there was a market which you could walk round and view,lots of small cafes and pubs further down the seafront,there was arcades and fairground rides and last but not least donkey rides on the beach.
One of the best sea side towns i have been to,it was just a shame we were not there on holiday
Summary: Great place to visit,even better to spend the aday in the sea
