Surf Snowdonia is the worlds first artificial wave lagoon for surfing. As well as surfing there's a crash and splash pool, soft play area, bar, restaurant and cafe. Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area.
This is the perfect place to learn or practice your advanced surfing skills. In a controlled environment a predictable wave is created every few minutes from around waist height at its highest point decreasing gradually at the sides and ends of the pool. At 300m in length you can surf a breaking wave for around 20 seconds (around 150m distance) and the waves gradually subside at the sides and ends of the lagoon which is where the learners surf.
If surfing isn't your thing then there's plenty more to keep you occupied. The splash and crash pool has an obstacle course and large "blob" - an inflated bag which a person can sit on one end whilst another jumps on to the other end launching them into the air. For younger visitors there's a soft play area and a bouncy castle. There's also a shop stocking a range of surfboards, wetsuits and clothing.
To end the day why not visit the onsite bar, restaurant or cafe? These open earlier and close later than the water based activities with service from 08:30am to 9pm

Known as Rhaeadr Fawr in Welsh, the waterfall measures almost 40 metres in height, formed by the Afon Goch flowing down the Carneddau foothills. They are found a short walk (roughly two miles) south of the village of Abergwyngregyn, and serve as the major attraction of the area. Well worth a visit, the walk is as enjoyable as seeing the falls.
If you can’t resist a historical day out, Conwy is an ideal location and you won’t want to miss out on Aberconwy House. Known as a hidden gem on the High Street, Aberconwy House is the oldest building in Conwy.
The most popular inland resort in North Wales, partly due to its convenience as a location but mostly thanks to its beauty and splendour. A lot of the village dates back to the Victorians, and their influence still abounds in the buildings. Surrounded by the dense forestry and imposing mountains of the region, Betws-y-Coed feels pleasantly out of the way.
