Barmouth Ferry

Barmouth Ferry runs from the "Point" at the extreme end of the spit of land at Fairbourne over to Barmouth. The Fairbourne Railway has its station at the Point, and there is a liaison between the railway and the ferry. The boats are small open boats and do not run in bad weather or off peak times. The ferry is a short trip across the estuary to land in Barmouth.

It is possible to use the Ferry for a round trip. Walk across Barmouth Bridge starting at Morfa Mawddach station, spend time in Barmouth, come back to Fairbourne Point on the ferry. Then take the Fairbourne Railway to halfway back to Fairbourne and walk across a clearly visible "dyke" back to Morfa Mawddach station.
