Visit Kinmel Bay

Kinmel Bay has a sand and shingle beach with a long promenade, and is just to the west of Rhyl. Kinmel Bay attracts nature lovers, walkers with the Kinmel Dunes Local Nature Reserve and The North Wales Coast Path running parallel to the beach.

The beach towards the River Clwyd can have strong currents (not recommended for swimmers) but watersports including kitesurfing, windsurfing and canoeing are popular.

For yachting and fishing go to Kinmel Bay’s harbour.

Dog friendly all year, but restricted from 1st May and 30th September between Dinas Avenue, Kinmel Bay and Sandbank Road Towyn.
