Big sweeping sandy beach. Lovely and clean. Great for walkers and cyclists too on the promenade which is wide and has a designated cycle path.

A decent enough beach which was full of families. It also allowed dogs and you did need to watch out for poop amongst the washed up jelly fish. Personally thought the beach at Rhos on sea was much better.

Me and my partner went here and absolutely loved it. It is less crowded than New Brighton or other nearby beaches.

A lot of money has been spent on this area and it is so worth it. A lovely long sandy clean beach. Lots of seating area along the walk and a nice cafe with home made cakes for our half way stop.

A must go to beach !! Very clean and tidy beach ... acres of space for kids to run around without the usual rows of flashing, blaring amusement arcades !! Lovely, peaceful, traditional day out st the beach.
