West Shore beach shows a quieter side to Llandudno than the bustling North Shore. This is a sandy beach, popular with holidaymakers and facing into Conwy Bay where low tide reveals a large expanse of sand, which is great for kite-flyers and kite-surfers alike. It's also renowned for its spectacular sunsets.
Walkers can join the Wales Cosat Path or hike up the nearby Great Orme headland a wildlife-rich Country Park and Special Area of Conservation.
Café, parking and toilet facilities by the beach.
West Shore Beach is managed by the Harbour and Seaboard Service, Conwy County Borough Council and is a 2017 Blue Flag award-winner
