Llanfairfechan

Llanfairfechan

In a nutshell. Village with its feet in the sea and head in the hills.  If you like your seaside with a peaceful, period twist you’ll love Llanfairfechan.  It’s a small Victorian resort that – in common with Llandudno across the bay – remains true to its roots.

There’s a prom fronting a wide stretch of low-tide sands plus a range of retro facilities that include a boating lake and bowling green. And, as well as those traditional time-honoured ‘beside the sea’ pleasures Llanfairfechan is also popular with windsurfers and kitesurfers.  Walkers are also partial to the place.

Llanfairfechan grew up on a narrow strip of land backed by steep hillsides.

Local walks are both scenic and historic with trails that include stretches of the Roman road that linked bases in Chester and Caernarfon.  Down the coast, don’t miss the spectacular Aber Falls that plunge 37m/120ft over rocks – they’re tucked away in a lovely wooded valley a few miles south of Abergwyngregyn.

raeth Lafan is another natural spectacle.  The large local nature reserve, a moody expanse of saltmarsh and intertidal sand, is noted for its birdlife.

In winter, it’s home to the UK’s largest population of moulting great crested grebes as well as large flocks of oystercatchers, red-breasted mergansers and golden eye.In a nutshell.Village with its feet in the sea and head in the hills.
