Colwyn Bay Hotels
On the north coast of Wales, Colwyn Bay is a quiet town overlooking the Irish Sea. With its wide sandy beach and a promenade that’s perfect for cycling or strolling, it’s an attractive resort for a seaside holiday. The town’s gentle character and impressive views ensures that Colwyn Bay hotels remain a popular choice. For a host of activities, nearby Llandudno is the largest seaside resort in Wales with endless Victorian charm.
One of Colwyn Bay’s main attractions is its beach and promenade. Whether fishing, swimming, sunbathing or cycling, there’s something for everyone. Kids will also enjoy a visit to Colwyn Bay’s Welsh Mountain Zoo – a conservation centre that’s home to seals, chimps, penguins and other exotic creatures.
In nearby Conwy, a must-visit is the spectacular Conwy Castle – one of the finest surviving medieval fortifications in Britain. Complete with eight towers and a large bow-shaped hall, the castle’s battlements provide stunning views out to sea.
Walkers can explore the Bryn Euryn Nature Reserve, where a selection of walking paths cross the grassy terrain and woodlands. The Summit Trail and Woodland Trail lead to the ruins of the 15th-century house, Llys Euryn, as well as a 6th-century fort. Outdoor enthusiasts can also walk to the Great Orme Country Park – a conservation area with Stone Age origins more than 200m above sea level. Alternatively, kids will enjoy a ride on the Great Orme Tramway – the only cable-hauled tramway operating on British public roads.
The Sunset Club in Rhos-on-Sea provides stand-up paddling courses while the Conwy School of Yachting gives classes in sailing. Adrenaline-seekers can try their hand at Quad Dragon Buggies or rock climbing in nearby Rhyl.
