There’s nothing like a seaside getaway, and it doesn’t get much better than the historic resort town of Colwyn Bay on the north coast of Wales. Book a family holiday, a romantic weekend or just a business break to Colwyn Bayand you’re bound fall in love with the crashing waves and sandy beaches that make this one of Wales’ top tourist destinations.

Here you can bury your toes in sandy beaches, explore the town’s array of mainstream and independent shops or head out on the water in a kayak, canoe or surfboard. Combine this with the rolling Welsh countryside and a number of remarkable heritage sites, and you’ll find Colwyn Bay has something to please the whole family.

Views in Colwyn BayFor landscape lovers, Colwyn Bay is a striking place to visit. It has won Gold in the Wales in Bloom on a total of eight separate occasions and boasts some impressive skylines. You’ll enjoy unobstructed views of the coast, where you can marvel at astounding sunsets.

Relax on the Beach in Colwyn BayRecent investment in seafront regeneration means Colwyn Bay’s beach has returned to the former glory of its Victorian days, when tourism here was at its height. Wider and sandier than it has been for many years, you can lie back with a book, take a stroll from one end of the bay to the other or just grab an ice cream with the kids on the promenade.

Visit Colwyn Bay’s Watersports CentreHave a go at surfing, sailing or speed boating under safe tuition at Porth Eirias Watersports Centre.

Give it a shot – maybe you’ll even be lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife in its natural habitat.

Historic ruins in Colwyn BayWhy not get out of town and explore some of the nearby history? The ruins of Llys Euryn, a medieval manor house, reside on a limestone hill close to Colwyn Bay. What little still stands of this site nevertheless offers an excellent taste for County Conwy’s rich and ambient heritage.
