I paddled on this lovely sandy beach most days. Once across the pebbles you can paddle without footwear. If you want almost no stones, go on the beach at the area closest to the... read more

I paddled on this lovely sandy beach most days. Once across the pebbles you can paddle without footwear. If you want almost no stones, go on the beach at the area closest to the Great Orme. Also, parking is free - a bonus if you're driving to llandudno.

Went yesterday with a coach. The coach dropped us off to the north shore beach which was all rocky and didn't see any sand. There were lots of shops and stuff to do with u like the hussle and bussle. As we had children we told the driver to take is to the west coast. The drive to one beach... More

A general good all-rounder. Lovely clean sand, gently sloping sea making it safe for children. Not too busy and very accessible.

Good quality sand and a gradually shelving beach, popular with families and watersports enthusiasts and with a glorious mountain backdrop. Weather conditions make or break the beach - on calm sunny days it is sublime, the equal of anywhere in the country, but occasionally a strong onshore wind will drive the sand up the beach and onto the road. The... More

It's a while since we spent a full day at the beach and it was great to see how well cared for this part of Llandudno is. Lots of golden sand for making sandcastles. The water was very clear although you should be aware of the tides - thankfully there was a guard on duty rounding up those people who... More

Sandy beach with a few stones & great views of the Great & little Orme, the sea was shallow & clean, when it went out it did go out along way, I had a little one who loved to jump in the sea and as it was shallow for a long way with no big waves felt quite safe, great... More

We took the little train from Llandudno to the west shore beach. We had trouble finding toilets and when we did they were filthy. There needs to be a tap somewhere so that children could wash the sand off themselves at the end of the day, This would free up the toilets. We saw two adults fall over trying to... More

We went out as a family of 5 to llandudno for the first time, Absolutely loved it, nice and clean and the kids really enjoyed it. The views were amazing to see on top of great orme. Would recommend to friends and family or anybody who visits.

If you're looking for a quality beach in Llandudno, then look West The West Beach is uncrowded, clean, quiet and not over commercialised, unlike the North Beach. Leave the masses behind and enjoy real seaside with sand, sea, a play area and loos.

This beach is situated just off the town centre in a quieter part of Llandudno,the area doesn't seem as well maintained as it could be,the beach runs along the coastal foot path to Conway,you can access a large part of the beach especially when the tide is out,the beach is a mixture of shale and sand.
