Beaches in North Wales
In a nutshell. Award-winners all along the coast.
Our beaches have bagged quite a few beachy ‘Oscars’.
This Award identifies resort and rural beaches that are well-managed with excellent standards of cleanliness and water quality.
The beaches are: Llandudno North Shore, Llandudno West Shore, Llanfairfechan, Penmaenmawr, Colwyn Bay/Rhos-on-Sea, and Pensarn (resort); Old Colwyn (to the east of Colwyn Bay) and Sandy Cove, Kinmel Bay (rural).

And they’re not just for summer.
In fact, many of our visitors prefer a bracing stroll on the beach in spring and autumn, when that salty tang really revives the spirits.
