If your fit enough a walk across Barmouth bridge is a must. Fabulous views towards Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay the other side. Oystercatchers are regular visitors to the sand banks.

Nice bridge, a very pleasant flat walk with stunning views over the estuary. Quaint "voluntary" toll charge paid to the troll on the Barmouth side. *the troll is an actual troll, not a grumpy man in a toll booth". ;)

On a beautiful Autumnal morning we walked over the bridge and along some of the coastal path. Stunning views of both the estuary and the Snowdonian Hills. Fresh air in abundance and no traffic!
