Set on the beautiful coast of North Wales the town of Colwyn Bay is located in the centre of a large bay, stretching from the harbour at Rhos-on-Sea in the west, to the original settlement of Old Colwyn to the east.
The seafront landmark of Victoria Pier is a prominent fixture jutting out from the long promenade which runs along the whole bay. The prom links the towns and villages with a level walkway & cycle route alongside the picturesque coast road which affords ample free parking. Visitors and residents can take in the views, access the sandy beach, jet ski, launch pleasure craft, do a spot of fishing or take it easy and relax with a picnic or a drink, ice-cream or light snack at one of the kiosks located along the prom.

The Welsh Mountain Zoo is also a popular destination as it provides a great day out for people of all ages.
Colwyn Bay Promenade
Colwyn Bay Promenade, a prominent attraction in North Wales, stretches over three miles along the Irish Sea coastline. Developed in the late 19th century to accommodate the growth of the town as a tourist destination, the promenade has undergone significant regeneration in recent years, with a total investment of £50 million. Notable features include the revamped Porth Eirias Waterfront Complex, which houses a watersports center, restaurants, and a beach hut-style facility. Additionally, the promenade connects the towns of Old Colwyn and Rhos-on-Sea, with their respective local amenities and harbors. Visitors to the promenade can also enjoy access to the sandy beach, making it a popular destination for both leisure and recreational activities.
