Barmouth Beach


    This is a view of the beach near town. Barmouth beach stretches two miles from the harbour. The sand is smooth and soft and a promenade extends the entire length of the beach. The tide covers the beach at full flood, and retreats about half a mile when at full ebb. Barmouth is renowned for its beach and deserves a good reputation. When I was a boy growing up in Barmouth, Frank Goodchild, who was a member of the coastguard at the time, used to fish from the beach and everytime I was with him he had caught at least two sea bass. Soft-shell crab seemed to be the magic bait, but only Frank could land the fish - he had the touch.
    This is further north along the beach, closer to Llanaber. As you can see here, on a sunny day you might think you had died and gone to heaven the view is so breathtaking. The beaches between here and Harlech are all wonderful.
