Colwyn Bay, just along the coast is another popular destination.

The area also boasts a leisure centre at Eirias, gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts, and an athletics stadium.
While exploring the North Coast you will come across the beautiful town of Conwy set on the Conwy River Estuary, dominated by the majesty of Conwy Castle. Fine views can be seen over the harbour and Snowdonia forms the backdrop to this medieval walled town. It is no surprise that today Conwy is designated as a World Heritage Site. The massive fifteen-foot thick walls guarded by twenty two towers stretch for three-quarters of a mile around the town, making Conwy one of the finest walled towns of the medieval period. Today visitors can still walk the Castle walls, enjoying views around the town and Harbour.
