The popular seaside resort of Llandudno is blessed with two excellent beaches. Busiest of the pair is the one found on the north shore – this sheltered beach is backed by a magnificent promenade and sits adjacent to the impressive Victorian pier.
The beach itself, like many along the north coast, features a narrow pebbley strip at high tide but soon opens up as the tide ebbs to reveal a broad stretch of sand. Donkey and Pony rides can be had here and there is a children’s paddling pool. Punch and Judy shows are another attraction which adds to the traditional resort atmosphere. Pleasure boat rides are available too.
Over on the West Shore you will find a much quieter beach with a vast expanse of sand revealed at low tide. This is a good spot for kite surfing and kite buggying.
If you fancy a change from the beach then excellent walking can be had on the nearby Great Orme, the limestone headland which hems in the west side of Llandudno Bay.
Both beaches are well supplied with facilities, including toilets. The north shore in particular has just about everything you could think of very close at hand (Llandudno high Street is only about 100m walk from the beach). The pier has all sorts of amusement arcades, games and souvenir shops. Deck chairs can be hired
Between the 1st of May and 30th September one section (of both beaches) is designated as a dog exclusion area.
