Penmaenmawr Beach - Clwyd

Promenade cafe

When the Penmaenmawr by-pass was built, it occupied the area of the original promenade. Consequently, a completely new promenade and facilities including a paddling pool, chalets, cafe and toilets were provided on land reclaimed from the head of the beach. A fine effort, but the effect is ruined by the intrusive traffic noise from the road just metres away - a feature shared with all the coastal towns which have been cut-off from their original purpose.
