Abergele Pensarn

This is a lovely shingle beach. The adjoining promenade is excellent for taking a pleasant stroll and is also suitable for wheelchair users. For a longer walk follow the North Wales Path which runs parallel to the beach and extends along the coast both to the east and west.

Cyclists can bring a bike and make use of the cycle track which forms part of the North Wales Cycle Network running along the coast from Pensarn to Rhos on Sea.

Facilities situated along the promenade include toilets, shops and a seasonal café, as well as a disabled access point to the beach.

In 1977, part of the beach was designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), in recognition of it being the best example of a vegetated shingle bank in the county and for its particularly rich flora.

Several plant species rare in North Wales, such as Sea kale, Ray’s knotgrass and Sea radish can be found on the shingle ridge. At the main point of access, there is an interpretation panel about the importance of this shingle bank which illustrates some of the plant species to be found.

The beach has a Seaside Award. Activities here include surfing and canoeing; there is no lifeguard at this beach.
