Fairbourne Beach

Fairbourne Beach, dunes abd Barmouth

Fairbourne has a long, wide gently sloping beach backed by a stony sea wall and further north by dunes. It is safe except for the more northerly areas near the estuary where the currents are strong and swimming is dangerous. It is great for kids and picnics in fine weather.

Fairbourne beach was MCS recommended in 2008, 2009 and also in 2010 (time of writing).

The Village of Fairbourne a small entertainment centre, a couple of shops and cafes. The other end of the Beach is "The Point" with a cafe and the far end of the Fairbourne Railway.
