Angel Bay, Little Orme  SH818827
Small shingle cove at the base and in the middle of the Little Orme cliffs! Reached from above on the Penryn Bay side - don't expect it to be empty - also the rocks on the west side are popular with fishermen. Beware of the limestone rocks which can become slippery when wet.

Llandudno - West Shore SH772814
Some shingle a very high tide but then giving way to a hugh expanse of sand at lower tide - ideal for walking (with dogs) but maybe not for swimming. Parking.

Conwy Sands SH770794
From Conwy marina there are sandy banks to the river Conwy giving way to a vast area of sandat th Beacons which continues down to Penmaen-bach Point (tunnel on A55). Can hear traffic noise but still a pleasant walk. Parking at both ends.

Penmaenmawr SH715766
Shingle at high tide, sand as it starts to go out. Access from the town and not the A55. Long stretch of beach with a prom and parking.

Llanfairfechan SH680755
An interesting little place with a old style cafe on the beach front, a good duck pond and a small skate board park. The beach is mainly shingle. Groynes on the beach. When the tide is out Lavan Sands is exposed - a large area of mud and sands that used to join up to Anglesey. There is a pram wheelchair friendly walk westwards and the area is very well known for birdlife. The walk continues to Abergwyngregyn (westwards) and is very enjoyable. Parking at both ends.

Abergwyngregyn SH651731
More of mudflats than a beach, the tide goes out a very long way. Great place for walking and birdwatching, often beautiful evening light. Parking.
