Towyn & Kinmel Bay
In a nutshell. Sand and classic ‘beside the sea’ family fun.
Mile after mile of big sandy beach runs along the north coast at Kinmel Bay and Towyn.
They share characteristics that make them perennially popular for family holidays – sandcastles and funfairs, carousels and candyfloss.
But there are certain differences…
Kinmel Bay is a sandy beach that attracts serious watersports enthusiasts as well as paddlers and swimmers.
Canoeing and windsurfing are popular and there’s a top-class kitesurfing centre with instruction and board hire.
The beach is backed by a narrow promenade used by cyclists and walkers. Adjacent to the promenade is the Kinmel Dunes Nature Reserve, which is home to a number of marttime plants such as the attractive sea holly and bird's foot trefoil. From Kinmel Dunes there are great views out to sea and clear days will show the Isle of Man and the Lake District.
Grey seals can sometimes be seen close to the shore and bird life includes, the skylark, kestrel and ringed plover.
Yachting and fishing fans head for Kinmel Bay’s pretty harbour, while landlubbers make for Y Morfa Leisure Centre, which has a multi-purpose sports hall, two squash courts and an outdoor multi-use games area.
Next-door Towyn is a bustling place, with beach-front amusements, fine sands and good shopping.
Two local attractions bring in the crowds.
The Tir Prince Leisure Park offers an unusual combination of American-style harness racing and a big amusement park with lots of rides – plus the largest outdoor weekly market in North Wales.
If that’s not enough, Knightley’s Fun Park is a complete amusement centre with everything from costumed characters to a frenetic family funfair.
The area is well known and loved by thousands as a camping and caravanning centre.
