Camping in Penmaenmawr

Penmaenmawr is a town in the parish of Dwygyfylchi, in the county borough of Conwy, Wales. It is a seaside resort and quarrying town, though the latter is no longer a major employer, on the North Wales Coast between Conwy and Llanfairfechan.

Most of the town lies on a small coastal plain about 2 miles in length and half a mile deep facing Conwy Bay and the Irish Sea to the north.

The bay is sheltered by the south-east tip of Anglesey and Ynys Seiriol (Puffin Island) to the north-west and the limestone headland of Pen-y-Gogarth (the Great Orme) to the north-east. The sea is shallow here between Traeth Lafan and the Conwy estuary. The beach is extensive, consisting of smooth pebbles and a wide expanse of sand.
