Penmaenmawr Beach

Book Tickets Online


Situated northeast of Bangor, the beach is sandy at low tide, with stones and pebbles forming the upper bay area. The beach area extends for over half a mile, with rocks and coastal defences at its outer edges. The coastal waters in this area form part of the Menai Strait and Conwy Bay Special Area of Conservation, confirming the high conservation status of the area. Windsurfing, sailing and canoeing are all popular activities here. A promenade runs behind the beach and has a skate park, paddling pool and play area alongside. There is good access to the beach for wheelchair users. The small town is in a picturesque setting backed by mountains and attracts hikers and coast path walkers. There are several shops, cafes and pubs in Penmaenmawr.

All the facilities of the small town are close at hand. Dog restrictions apply May - end September.
