The beach at Deganwy is mostly sand backed by shingle and a short promenade, and borders the estuary of the Conwy. There can be strong currents at certain stages of the tide, so swimming is definitely not advisable. Extensive sandbanks are revealed at low tide, which can trap the unwary on an incoming tide. Signs warn against venturing out onto these banks, and a rescue raft is moored on the largest bank in case of strandings. There is some roadside parking on Marine Crescent (reached by turning off at the level crossing by the rail station).
The railway station is about 200 yards from the beach, opposite a small parade of shops.
The photo was taken 1½ hours before low tide.
