The town of Llandudno is one of those classic seaside resort towns, complete with all the requisite parts: a lovely Victorian pier, old school amusement arcades, and quality coastal fish and chip shops. There is also the majestic Great Orme, from the top of which incredible views over the area can be enjoyed, but another main attraction is – of course – the North Shore beach.

Llandudno North Shore is also known simply as Llandudno Beach, revealing that it is the main beach in the area, and it is easy to see why it is so popular. Think back to the Victorian ideal of a beachy getaway, and you won’t be far off when you reach North Shore: you can enjoy a tub of ice cream on the pier, have fun on a donkey ride along the sands, or even kick back and take in a Punch and Judy show, which has been running here for more than 150 years!

Hire a deck chair and soak up the sun, or simply awaken the child in you and get to building a sand castle; the choice is yours. It’s predominantly a stony beach, but if you rock up near the pier then there are sandy areas to enjoy. There are good disabled facilities, a dog exercise area, and even opportunities to take a jaunt in a speedboat. What more could you want?
