Llandudno Bay is a curved beach 1¾ miles long, set between the limestone headlands of Little Ormes Head (to the east) and Great Ormes Head. The beach is sand and some shingle and is backed by a wide promenade. The seafront road is lined with Victorian and Edwardian hotels and the town has all the facilities one would expect from a major seaside resort, including a large children's paddling pool on the promenade.
P&D parking can be found along the seafront and in the town, but Llandudno's streets are very wide and it is easy to find (free) roadside parking further back from the beach. A dog ban operates on the western section of the beach (from Clarence Road to the Pier) from May to September inclusive.
Many visitors will make the journey up the Great Orme (679 feet high), which can be done by tramway or cable car for those who don't want to walk it. The views from the top reach as far as the Isle of Man and Blackpool Tower.
Llandudno is the resort where the author Lewis Carroll stayed with the Liddell family; their daughter Alice providing the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland. The town makes its visitors very aware of this association.
