From Conwy in the west to the Dee Estuary in the east, the North Wales Coast offers one stunning beach after another. Close proximity to Liverpool, Manchester, and the West Midlands has made the resorts of North Wales extremely popular over the years, and their family-friendly charms make the region one of the most-visited parts of Wales.
With so many seaside towns to choose from along the North Wales Coast, it’s difficult to know which one to describe first! Llandudno is a classic Victorian resort, with a superb pier, traditional Punch and Judy show, and dry ski slope and good old-fashioned fish and chips on offer. Like many of the beaches here, Llandudno has a Blue Flag award for the cleanliness of its waters, and the sheltered aspect of the beach makes it a firm favourite for families with young children. The Great Orme, a huge rocky headland, is one of Llandudno’s principal attractions, and visitors can head up to the top by cable car or tram...or they can walk, of course! Visitors are rewarded with stunning views out to sea and the chance to spot rare seabirds and the Great Orme’s resident wild Kashmir goats.
Further along the North Wales coast, the resorts of Colwyn Bay, Rhyl, and Prestatyn all have their own charms and their own bands of admirers. The Welsh Mountain Zoo sits high above Colwyn Bay and makes for an exciting day out if the weather isn’t perfect for a day on the beach. At Rhyl, the SeaQuarium is a fabulous experience for youngsters and adults alike, with touch pools to explore and the chance to get up close and personal with the resident seals.
No visit to the seaside of North Wales is complete without a fish and chip supper, ice cream, and perhaps some candy floss, and there is no shortage of opportunities to sample these on the North Wales Coast. If you want something a little more sophisticated, though, there are plenty of great restaurants to discover. Bistro Bach in Llandudno is a charming little restaurant, using local produce to deliver well-cooked food at reasonable prices, whilst in Colwyn Bay, The Toad and The White Lion Inn are both popular choices.
The seaside might be the big attraction in this part of North Wales, but there are plenty of other things to see and do. Conwy Castle is one of the most imposing and impressive castles in Wales and should be on everyone’s bucket list. Plas Mawr, also in Conwy, is a stunning example of an Elizabethan townhouse, with fascinating glimpses into what life was like during that period of history. Please take a few minutes to study the charming accommodation we have in Conwy.
Whether you choose one of the large North Wales resorts like Rhyl, Prestatyn, or Llandudno, or you go for the quieter charms of Abergele and Kinmel Bay, the North Wales coast is guaranteed to offer long, sandy beaches with plenty of room to enjoy your stay. Many tourists opt for short breaks and accommodation is plentiful, with everything on offer, to suit families with children, couples looking for a romantic break, and larger groups looking for traditional seaside fun.
