The beach at Deganwy is mostly sand and shingle and borders the estuary of the Conwy. A short promenade backs the beach and a cycle path continues northwards to Llandudno's West beach. 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 in case of strandings.
Some roadside parking is available on Marine Crescent (reached by turning off the A546 at the level crossing by the rail station). Further P&D parking can be found at Deganwy railway station - about 200 yards from the beach and opposite a small parade of shops. The station is one stop from Llandudno Junction on the North Wales Coast main line.
The name 'Deganwy' comes from 'Din-Gonwy' meaning the 'fort on the Conwy'. The photo was taken 1½ hours before low tide.
