We all know that there is a wide variety of beaches in the world, from pebble laden beaches to muddy beaches, to marshy inlets and mangroves, and rocky cliffs. But when it comes to a day out on the beach, nice sandy beaches are the way to go, you can relax with your feet in the sand, set up a windbreak, make sandcastles, take a snooze on the soft sand, and have a paddle in the waters. We have put together a nice list of some lovely beaches which are covered in sand where you can spend a sunny day and even watch a sunrise or sunset – soaking in the glory of North Wales.
Let’s start at our home, the glorious seaside town of Llandudno. Hailed as the queen of welsh resorts thanks to the great care that the town has taken to preserve its Victorian charm. The town is lucky enough to have two beaches – the iconic North Shore which stretches between the two Ormes, which is mostly covered in stones but does have a small sandy corner where you can kick back and enjoy the sand.
This is Llandudno’s sandy beach, its blue flag status attracts all kinds of tourists from all over to enjoy its attractive dunes and other beautiful aspects of this shore. The beach has great parking facilities so it is wonderfully accessible. You can take your family or dog on the beach for a runaround or a stroll along its wide-open sands. It’s also a great option to relax and enjoy yourself.
On the edge of the Llyn Peninsula has a very large and rich history. This ranges from iron age fort on a prominent headland, to being transformed into a harbour, and a very important stop on the route from London to Dublin. And now, it is a lovely tourist spot, with its world-famous Ty Coch Inn stands as the 3rd Best Beach bar in the whole world!
This is perhaps one of Wales’ most well-loved beaches, just over the Menai strait onto the isle of Anglesey. This beach is separated from the main island by a thick forest of Corsican pines, the end of the beach has a tidal island that features a distinctive white lighthouse called ‘Ty Mawr’. This beach really does have it all and is an adventure ripe for the whole family.
This beautiful and famous beach is a holiday destination that is well sought after as a vacation destination. It’s also a fantastic choice for a day trip, pack a picnic, swimming gear and a lot prepare for a day of beach fun.
This beach is similar to Llandudno’s west shore with its sandy dunes and expansive spaces where you can walk, relax and play with friends and family. It’s just across the Conwy river and is overlooked by the rising shape of Conwy Mountain in the seascape’s backdrop.
