Penmaenmawr Beach 

Penmaenmawr Beach

Now admittedly the beach is shingle above the high water mark and the proximity of the A55 and railway have an effect on the overall ambiance, but it's the plusses that count: cafe; proper loos; huge expanses when the tides' out; play areas; paddling pool; extensive traffic free promenade ideal for bikes, scooters, roller blades; grass for footy.. . the practical parents choice!
The cycle path (N.C.R.5) and the coastal path follow the prom. At the very west end ramps zigzag under the A55 to a bridge to pick up the old Telford road around Pen y Clip headland - a recommended walk or cycle.

trans_walk25 From TyF, as for Dwygyfylchi beach via the public footpath by the Parish Hall to the footbridge over the A55. Follow the cycle route/coastal path west past the roundabout (junction 16) and down onto the east end of the prom. Say 15+ mins by bike, 30+ mins on foot.
trans_car_25  Go through Dwygyfylchi into Penmaenmawr. Just after the 30mph sign look for a railway station sign and turn right down Station Road East. Park in the vicinity of the bowling green (limited parking - if busy go on to the prom) and walk through the tunnel onto the prom.
Alternatively, to park on the promenade, continue through Penmaenmawr on Bangor Road to a signposted right turn over the A55 (junction 15a) and turn onto the west end of the prom at a mini-roundabout.
