Llanfairfechan Beach

Just the other side of the Pen Y Clip headland is Llanfairfechan and given the broad similarities of character and facilities of the beach here to Penmaenmawr beach, what might prompt you to trek here instead? Well I can suggest that this is more suited to older children. There's more space, including a footy pitch (adjacent to the boating pool). And heading west there are the vast inter-tidal sands of Traeth Lafan. This nature reserve and SSSI is home to the largest population of great crested grebes in the UK during the winter months. There are hides and observation points but the main attraction is walking the coastal path and enjoying the ambiance and views towards Anglesey, Puffin Island and the Straits.
So bring your walking shoes because this is a good area to explore.

Turn off at the Llanfairfechan roundabout exit 15 and, following the signs to the beach, turn right at the traffic lights (or there is a short cut immediately first right to the promenade, but don't try to take anything bigger than a normal car through the "rabbit hole" tunnel under the railway).
