West Shore Beach lies on the south-western side of North Wales' Llandudno headland. It is less busy than the more developed North Shore and has lovely views over Conwy Bay and out towards Anglesey.

At low tide there is a large expanse of golden sand which is suitable for ball games and kitesurfing. As the beach faces west it enjoys some spectacular sunsets.

Cars can be parked along West Parade and there is a small car park at the southern end of the road. The beach has a café and toilets and there is a quiet promenade along which toilets and a café can be found. There is a boating lake and young children’s play area close to the beach.
