Llandudno beach is an unspoilt, beautiful stretch of the coastline, surrounded by boulders. Whilst surfers favour this beach, the rough and cold seas are not conducive to swimming. Lifeguards are, however, on duty during the busy holiday seasons.

Residents are fiercely protective of this little haven from the world, and rightly so. With the focus on relaxation, Llandudno is a great place for suntanning and beach sports.

A long and lazy family picnic on the beach is also a great way to spend the day. You’ll be able to enjoy some beach volleyball or soccer and look forward to relaxing on an uncrowded beach. Only a small amount of parking spots are available so overcrowding is not a common occurrence.

Due to the small size of Llandudno, the beach is almost always close by, and if you need to shop or eat out, it’s just a short drive to Hout Bay and other suburbs. Llandudno has only one access road which easily preserves the quiet atmosphere, guaranteeing you a peaceful holiday.
