Fairbourne

Fairbourne’s beautiful golden sands are backed by a steep bank of pebbles. They fringe a narrow finger of land that extends most of the way across the mouth of the Mawddach Estuary, with stunning views of mountains, woodlands and the sea. The west-facing side of the beach can receive strong winds, making it ideal for watersports, especially windsurfing, surfing and sailing. The beach has traces of World War Two – its ‘Dragon’s Teeth’ were tank traps to stop the enemy from landing here. The delightful narrow-gauge Fairbourne Railway – the tiniest of Wales’s many ‘little trains’ – runs to the end of the beach, connecting with a small passenger ferry which completes the journey to Barmouth at the opposite side of the estuary.
