My 3 year old son had been asking if we could go to the beach for weeks. After we dropped on with the weather and had a bit of sun we decided to go to Llandudno. The beach is great, the sea was out so there was loads of Sandy beach and small rock pools for the kids to explore.
There is a rock wall which is great to pitch up by as it works as a wind break. There is loads of free parking along the front as well as a pay and display car park near to a cafe.
There is also a play ground on the front as well which is great for the kids. Lovely beach would recommend.

Just a few minutes walk from the bustle of Llandudno promenade is the West shore.

This is far more unassuming and curves round through Deganwy to Conwy. There is a cafe and you walk along the mixture of sand and stone.

The water is crystal clear though the weather appears to change very quickly as cloud rolls off and on Conwy mountain but lovely views and a pleasant walk

We drove to find this and had a lovely long walk along the path by this beach. Although it was a cold Saturday in January, there were plenty people about enjoying the fresh air. Plenty of seating, free parking and the only downside was that the cafe wasn't open for a hot chocolate.

The better of the two shorelines, West Beach is backed by a quiet residential estate. A dune provides a lovely walk, but it isn't suitable for wheelchairs. A cafe is nearby, and at high tide, the sea is safe to bathe. A magnificent view of the Snowdonia Mountains on the other side of the Conway River Estuary.

We were lucky enough to visit Llandudno during the heatwave in July & we wanted a pretty, quiet sandy beach. West Shore was perfect for this with the lovely view of the mountains across & the clean light sand. The sea was calm though we were wary of jelly fish, there didn't appear to be many fortunately. We managed to park on the road nearby for free & carried our folding chairs & umbrella to the beach, there's also pay toilet cubicles & a children's park, there's a quiet residential road opposite. With it being so hot you could close your eyes, dig your toes in the sand & pretend you were abroad !! We enjoyed relaxing & having a paddle & would definitely recommend West Shore beach.

We were visiting Llandudno and were disappointed with North Shore beach at first, so we went to West Shore hoping to find some sand to sit on and chill - and low and behold - there was lots of it! A beautiful beach which was extremely clean and tidy. It was fairly quiet when we went and the tide was out so we had a short paddle. This is the kind of beach to lounge on all day in the sunshine. The views around are beautiful, and there is a trail located nearby that takes you up the mountain. We didn’t stay for too long however we have said that next time we visit Llandudno we shall spend at least 1 day here! The only thing that would make this beach better is facilities nearby.

Great for dogs to play on - with caveats....

Dogs were only allowed at the far end of the beach ( Great Orme end ), and if the tide is in there is limited space if busy but when the tide is out there are literally acres of space.

Facilities are limited and you have to do your best to find street parking that does not inconvenience residents - nothing is worse than inconsiderate parking.

Lovely clean sandy beach. A lovely day out with the family. Plenty of parking, the surrounding toilets had not opened yet but luckily had a potty for the 4 year old to use in the car.

We had a lovely morning as a family building sand castles, collecting stones and a bit of swimming in the sea.

Away from the promenade and at the end of the residential area of Llandudno. More a locals area than tourist. Sea more bracing and wild. Nice cafe - The Beach Cafe - tucked up in the corner. Serving Home made cakes, soups, lightbites. Friendly propriator Open Wednesday til Sunday, Was Busy when we went in on Saturday mid morning.

Stopped here for a couple of hours after attempting Colwyn Bay but could not get parked for love nor money so went to West Shore. Little park area kept the kids amused for half an hour or so, then we took a walk down a little further along the front then onto the beach. Kids built sandcastles and we were able to play some beach games. Decent little stop for a couple of hours, but not much to do here.
