Found just outside of the lovely little seaside resort village of Abergele, Towyn Beach is a delightful stretch of shingles and sand. The views out onto the sea are glorious, especially on a day when the sun is shining brightly, and you can see right over Colwyn Bay towards the Isle of Man.
It is popular with families, especially as there are funfairs and the like nearby, but it is also a haven for those of us who travel with a four legged friend in tow, as it is entirely dog friendly. Dogs are welcome all throughout the year, and they may enjoy the whole of the beach at their own pace.
Once you get past the shingle, the sands stretch on for ages, making them perfect to build a sand castle or two, so make sure you bring your buckets and spades with you.
Facilities are good here as well, with fantastic shopping opportunities just a short walk away from the beach, as well as all the usual things such as public toilets, cafés, restaurants, pubs and the like.
Located in Abergele, Towyn Beach is easy to find. There is both parking and toilets nearby, so it makes a perfect location for a whole day out.

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.
Snowdonia – known in its native Welsh as Eryri, which is often translated to “place of the eagles” – is a beautiful part of the United Kingdom. Covering 823 square miles of idyllic Welsh countryside, mountains, rivers, lakes, forests and beaches, Snowdonia is paradise for any hiker, climber, fisher, swimmer, sailor, surfer, sunbather, potholer, zip-liner… the list goes on.
Snowdonia National Park is renowned for being an area of outstanding natural beauty, providing everything from scenic strolls to mountaintop views. The scenery is wonderfully varied, with rugged ridges and peaks, golden beaches, and verdant forests making it the perfect place to get completely lost in nature for a while.
