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 between Dinas Avenue and Sandbank Road 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.
