If you live in Wales or the Midlands then Barmouth is a great place to go for a day trip. It takes on average about two and a half to three hours to get to from Shropshire and offers a wealth of activities to do for families. The roads do get a little windy as you come in to the valleys of Wales but the scenery is breath taking.
With its golden sandy beaches, sand dunes and pier it really is a wonderful place to holiday to and on the beach you can find activities such as donkey rides, bouncy castles and trampolines to keep the children entertained throughout the day.
If you like crab fishing then there are plenty of places to pick up a crab line and bucket and for a truly great crabbing experience you could head a few miles outside of Barmouth to Shell Island.
There are plenty of places to eat in Barmouth, although they do get booked up quickly so it is advised that you book in advance if at all possible.
