North Wales is blessed to have many fantastic beaches on its shores, below are some of our favourites. There are so many things to do in North Wales!
This lesser-known beach is a gorgeous location for views both up and down the North Wales coastline. Ranging from the jutting limestone headline of Llandudno’s Great Orme, all the way over to Rhyl, Blackpool and the peak district far beyond. It is known to show some fabulous sunsets to those who come here for a relaxing evening stroll.
While it is predominantly shingle-covered, as the tide is out you are treated to gorgeous sandy patches which are ideal for the family to enjoy on a beach jaunt. It is also right next to our amazing holiday park ‘Bron Y Wendon’, which itself has some of the most glorious views that anyone could ask for right from the pitches.
Llandudno West Shore
Llandudno West Shore is one of the most beautiful beaches in the region, thanks to its sandy dunes and west-facing nature it is supremely located for a sunset viewing. You can view the crystalline waters towards the Isle of Anglesey and the Llyn Peninsula.
If you are here on a clear day you will be blown away by the pleasant outlook towards this North-Western corner of Wales. When the tide is out, you are treated to very vast stretches of sand. Be wary of the tide as it comes in fast and it’s possible to be stranded on a sandbank, so go with caution and always check tide tables first.
This beach is amazing. It has plenty of sand 24 hours a day, no matter what the tide is doing – thanks to the hard work the council has done dredging sand from the bottom of the ocean and placing it on the shore. There is also a state-of-the-art restaurant and watersports centre at Porth Eirias, where you can get a gourmet bite to eat at Bryn Williams restaurant.
This beach is one of the finest in Wales, as you cross over the Menai straight onto the isle of Anglesey, if you drive to its western shore, you will be taken to Newborough.
This beach is located on the other side of a large forest of Corsican pines which were introduced to this soul by a local naturalist who was interested in starting a colony of this exotic tree on this isle of Anglesey.
Newborough beach is a wide-sweeping sandy bay that can hold a great many people enjoying its sandy shores. Upon the edge of the beach is Ynys Llanddwyn, a dreamlike tidal island that is home to the ruins of an abbey that holds an important place in welsh mythology and folktales. There is even a fairytale-esque lighthouse here, which is completely white and named Ty Mawr lighthouse or ‘The Big House’. There are a lot of secret bays and coves to explore.
This lovely beach is covered with sand and is a great place to take the family, the dog or that special someone on a sunny day. You can enjoy a nice long walk along the shores or set up on the sand to enjoy a picnic and a glass of wine in the sunshine.
Conwy Morfa has incredible views over to the Great Orme in Llandudno, Puffin Island, and has a stunning backdrop of the mountains. It is also the ideal spot to watch the sunset.
