This beach had many families enjoying themselves as we walked along it. The sea here is calmer with it being behind the harbour breakwater.

I see that the works going on at the moment are bringing more sand to build up the beach further along so it'll be good once it's finished.

We went for a day trip here during our recent holiday and were not disappointed. The sandy beach was perfect for our little girl to have fun building sandcastle, moats and getting buried. The Sea was clean and inviting too. Would definitely return.

Choose your location wisely as the tide comes in right up to the top. The best places are right up near the rocks (left side of beach) or further down towards the 'colwyn' letters.

We have driven straight past this beach a number of times but when I saw a space to park right beside the beach we stopped. There were five people on the beach, lovely views across the harbour and sounds of the waves with masts rattling was perfect to lay back and relax. We always thought the road was so busy it would not be worth stopping here but you do not hear any of that it was a nice relaxing time and all the shops are opposite for essentials like ice cream and beer.

Conwy council decided to wait for 2 years untill covid restrictions lifted before trashing the prom and the beach. Yea, we hate tourists round here. Confrontational walk now offered on prom; best to walk west towards little orme. Forget about the beach, building site now. Another huge stash of council cash wasted, very few locals wanted this.

First the good points for this beach/resort. There is copious free car parking and several cafes/kiosks actually on the prom and in the immediate vicinity a plethora of cafes, restaurants,shops,pubs and public toilets and more car parking. Also an award winning chippie. The views are pleasant complete with a little harbour in front of the sea defence breakwater. The beach needs great care because there are significant areas of silt and mud (darker in colour) especially near the breakwater. Also at high tide the beach is under water with the water lapping up against the prom.
All is not lost because 10 minutes or so walk towards Colwyn Bay there is no silt or mud and, because the sand was imported, at high tide there is still an excellent beach and completely safe for kids (under supervision of course). The car parking here is not free and it is not as handy for the shops etc.

First time visit and we was impressed. The beach was clean and spotless and no litter about at all. There was a good selection of small independent shops and it was busy with plenty of people about. A great little resort, worth a visit.

As far as I'm concerned this is the BEST little coastal resort on this coastline. It's traditional, clean, great little harbour and beach. Nice selection of shops and cafe's and a lovely welcome to visitors. Keep it like this please and don't develop it any further.

The beach with all the recent improvements is superb. Easily up there as one of the best in North Wales for families. Full marks to Conwy Council for its cleanliness and all the hard work. Looking forward to the completion of the promenade works this year making it a beautiful walk along the sea front.

It's between Colwyn Bay & llandudno, so a perfect stopping point. Lots of free prom parking a bonus. At the moment the down side is the road & beach ground works going on. So traffic very bad. Probably for 2/3 months. So be warned.

I am frankly appalled that on a damp grey Sunday in May where the town wasn't busy, the local authority chose to enforce a poorly signposted beach dog ban by issuing fixed penalty fines of £75 to old ladies with tiny dogs......I met a poor lady who had been fined for a 5 minute walk along a scruffy bit of beach, no dog mess just a walk.....Having parked up to do some shopping and buy lunch we promptly left without parting with any of our cash in this town. Local businesses I suggest you apply some pressure, the only reason many folk would bother coming to this town would be to walk the dog on the beach.............
