Deganwy is a lovely little village in a prime location: just nestled in between the coastal resort town of Llandudno and the historic walled town of Conwy. Sitting on the banks of the Conwy River, it is a fantastic place to visit for a day – explore the village at your leisure, while enjoying the incredible views of the sea, of the estuary and of Conwy Castle.
Deganwy also has a wonderful beach. It is one of the few beaches on the North Wales coast that faces south west, meaning it is a bit of a suntrap, ensuring that you will always be able to make the most of the sunny weather.
The beach is a long, sandy one, and is completely dog friendly, meaning that your canine pals can run free up and down the length of the sands at all times of the year. It’s a great place for a walk or a picnic.
If you fancy a longer walk, the coastal path here will lead you right the way to the Great Orme, one of Llandudno’s most popular attractions. From the top of the Great Orme you can enjoy some amazing views, and you (and the dog, provided he or she is on a lead and well-behaved) can relax on the famous tramway on the way back down.
Located in Deganwy, close to Conwy, this beach is very easy to get to. There is parking available nearby.

Conwy Castle is easily the most spectacular of all the castles in North Wales (and cost the most to build, too!). The castle was built for Edward I by Master James of St George, and is one of the most impressive surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
Criccieth Castle was constructed on the headland between two beaches, meaning it watches over the town from above like a sentinel. Rather a lot of the original structure is still intact, allowing visitors to see an almost complete picture of what the castle would have looked like all those centuries ago, with their imaginations filling in the gaps.
Conwy Morfa Beach is a large expanse of golden sands, a big, sandy bay that becomes larger and larger as the tide goes out, until it links up with the rest of the beaches around Conwy Bay. It is one of the many beaches of Clwyd that are completely dog friendly – that is, you and your dogs can enjoy the entirety of the beach, at all times of the year.
