Kinmel Bay is a wide sandy beach lying to the west of the River Clwyd in the county of Conwy. The shore is backed by a pebble bank and sea defence walls, with low dunes at the eastern end. A promenade and cycle path runs behind the beach. Behind this are holiday parks and private residential estates. A small car park (7 foot height restriction) is located at the end of St Asaph Road, which leaves the A548 about ½ mile east of the railway bridge. Facilities include an ice-cream shop and a supermarket. Signs warn of soft sand and the dangers of sandbanks. Dog restrictions apply from May to September inclusive.
Towyn beach is further west, and is a similar sandy beach, backed mostly by a defence wall of boulders. From mid to high tide the sea comes right up to the boulders, and no beach is available. Backed by holiday parks, parking nearby is difficult.
