Penmaenmawr is set against a stunning backdrop of mountains with a wonderful view out across the Menai Strait to Puffin Island and the island of Anglesey. Its sunsets are picture perfect and worth experiencing all year round. Our Blue Flag long sandy beach and recently refurbished promenade make for a great family seaside destination.
Spend time making sand castles on the beach, jumping waves and body boarding in the surf. Take a leisurely stroll along the promenade and stop off at the family-run Beach Café for a wide range of hot meals, light snacks and ice cream. Our outdoor paddling pool and play area are great draws for children. Hire a beach chalet for the day and use it as your base and changing room after time on the beach and in the sea. Water sports here at Penmaenmawr include windsurfing, sailing and canoeing and there is an active sailing club (note: there is no lifeguard).
Away from the beach, there are plenty of things to do and see in Penmaenmawr. Here are some ideas to whet your imagination. We've also given you ideas for places to eat and stay in our lovely seaside town.
Come with us on a journey through time – a journey that takes you thousands of years into the past and leads you to the town you see today.
Whether you want to explore the Neolithic and Bronze-age worlds of our ancestors who lived on the uplands; or if you want to travel forward to the Victorian era when Penmaenmawr’s popularity as a ‘posh’ seaside resort sat uneasily under the glare of the hardship felt by the quarryworkers and their families; our museum experience takes you there.
