Llandudno is North Wales' premier costal tourist resourt, with a wide variety of activities and sights nearby to suit all tastes.
The West Shore
Across the road from Beth Eden is a sandy beach, which is clean and safe. It is used for bathing at high tide, and by wind surfers and power kites at other times. A track at the top of the beach makes an attractive route for walkers and cyclists into Deganwy and Conwy, and to the RSPB reserve. By the beach is a popular children's play area (pictured in default Google street view to the right), and a swan lake (viewable if you move the Google Street View image to the right).
It is a level walk or drive into Llandudno's extensive shopping centre and onto the Prom and the pier. From April to October there is a Land Train service taking you from just over the road from Beth Eden to the North Shore near the pier.
Also in Llandudno is Venue Cymru, with its theatre and conference centre. Several other venues host regular concerts by the famous Welsh male voice choirs. The Great Orme rises behind Beth Eden, and can be climbed on foot, by tram, or by cable car, with tremendous views from the top. If you have the energy, within Llandudno you can go skiing, tobogganing, rock-climbing, swimming, ten-pin bowling, or golfing. Slightly further away in Llandudno Junction is a modern multiplex cinema.
