Beautiful beach on the quieter side of Llandudno. Spotlessly clean. Not a lot of facilities, but plenty of free and paid car parking around.

Far quieter than the beach at the promenade, this is a lovely spot for a nice outdoor activity. Unlike the promenade beach, there are no restaurants but there are some cafes where you can get a snack.

Thank you for writing the review. We are undecided as to whether take our dog with us. Is it clear where you can and can't go with a dog on the beach? Rachael

Check out Conwy council website under dog control . Season controls at 1 May to 30 Sept. All year restriction on part of Rhos beach.
Does the west shore get covered when the high tide is in.
