Penmaenmawr

In a nutshell. Seaside, walks and spectacular sunsets.

The north coast settlement of Penmaenmawr shares many characteristics with neighbouring Llanfairfechan.

It’s like the seaside used to be, genteel and low key, with a long promenade, paddling pool and children’s playground, rounded off by a row of traditional beach huts (with a nod to the 21st-century there’s also a skate park).

The big, sandy beach is well suited to sandcastle-making and watersports (there’s a thriving local sailing club), with the bonus of splendid views across Conwy Bay to Anglesey and Puffin Island.

Also in common with Llanfairechan, Penmaenmawr doubles up as a well-located walking and touring centre.

Trails lead upwards into hills crossed by Roman roads and dotted with historic sites that include an Iron Age fort, Druid’s Circle and fascinating Stone Age ‘axe factory’, implements from which have been found all over Britain.

If you’re driving, don’t miss the thrilling trip up and over the narrow Sychnant Pass, the historic route to Conwy.

There’s more history back in town at Penmaenmawr Museum, which recalls the town’s quarrying past.

Other local amenities and attractions include a golf course, challenging enough in its own right without the added handicap/distraction of superb sea views.

For more information about Penmaenmawr, take a look at the Visit Penmaenmawr website.
