Wales Coast Path

Wales Coast Path

Heading for Rhos-on-Sea

Wales Coast Path

In a nutshell. Sandcastle and the real thing at medieval Conwy.

If Wales wasn’t on the world walking map before, it certainly is now.

The opening of the Wales Coast Path in 2012 – the only one of its kind on the planet – brought immediate accolades.

The Lonely Planet guidebook ranked coastal Wales at number-one in its ‘Best of Travel’ list, beating competition from South and North America, New Zealand, Africa and India.

The path runs for 870 miles.

Don’t worry, we don’t expect you to walk it all in one go.

Most walkers choose a bite-sized portion of the big cake.

So what can you expect along our stretch of the coast?

Walking westwards from Kinmel Bay (great for watersports, by the way), you’ll have one of the longest sandy beaches in North Wales for company to Towyn and beyond.

Pensarn’s fine sandy beach is one of our best-kept secrets – it rarely gets busy.

Then it’s on to Colwyn Bay.

The beach here is – again – quite superb.

The resort’s beachy credentials have recently gone one better with the creation of a new artificial non-tidal beach area and sea defence.

Follow the promenade all the way to pretty, peaceful Rhos-on-Sea, then across the Little Orme headland (great for wildlife spotting) to Llandudno (resort royalty) and the Great Orme (even better for wildlife, plus fascinating historic sites).

Next comes the lovely, mountain-backed Conwy Estuary and the outstanding medieval town of Conwy, with its World Heritage castle and views to Snowdonia.

The mountain-backed coastline continues to Penmaenmawr and Llanfairfechan, two charming little Victorian resorts.

We even give you a choice of routes here – from Conwy to Llanfairfechan there’s an upland alternative into those mountains.
