Colwyn Bay is what nostalgic holiday dreams were once made of. Almost. From its glory days as a Victorian seaside resort, it has been revived to appeal to today’s visitors. So, let’s go!
Where the hills of North Wales slope down to the coastline, Colwyn Bay’s long sandy beach stretches for miles. A wander along the promenade leads all the way to Rhos-on-Sea. That is if the Porth Eirias seafront attraction doesn’t stop you in your tracks with wafts from its restaurants and squeals of delight from its many activities. You’ll be sorted for supper when self-catering in Colwyn Bay whether you wish to dine in or out. Days out with the kids typically lead you to the Welsh Mountain Zoo, which promises epic views out to sea once you’ve seen enough chimpanzees. If you’re visiting as a couple, look for a show at Theatr Colwyn - it’s the oldest working theatre in Wales. Settle for a week by the seaside in one of our Colwyn Bay holiday cottages.
